Abstract

One of the main objectives of Research Coordination Project (CRP) was to make improvements in control strategies using new applied technologies such as mass trapping strategies. The experimental sites were located in INTA Concordia in the northeast of the country at 31 deg. 22 ' latitude South and 58 deg. longitude West at 47.5 m over sea level. During the experimental period the rainfall, RH, temperatures and winds had been registered by the Weather Station of INTA Concordia. The use of mass trapping gave satisfactory fly control in some cases when low population densities were present. The mass trapping is an innovative alternative to the traditional ground or aerial application of toxic baits. In the present paper the results of comparative field studies on effects of attractant, trap density and deployment on the efficacy of the mass trapping methods for the control of the medfly are reported. The most promising trapping system for mass trapping is the combination of Multilure (MLT) trap and the M3 toxic bait although no statistical difference was found compared with MLT and Biolure with DDVP as retention system. These treatments showed to be as effective as the conventional control based on ground bait sprays and have the additional advantage that are more environment friendly. Additional comparative studies to assess cost-effectiveness of these treatments are required. (author)
