Determination of the effectiveness of two yellow sticky traps tones in different numbers of management pear psylla, Cacopsylla pyri (Linnaeus, 1758) (Hemiptera: Psyllidae)

Abstract : The pear cultivation is important in the world. The numerous studies have been carried out by scientists in the field of pear cultivation and plant protection in the world and in our country. In the studies, many methods were used within the aim of Integrated Control against the pear pest (Cacopsylla pyri). Within the scope of biotechnical pest control, yellow sticky traps have been the subject of many studies for pest monitoring and partially control purposes. Within the scope of this study, a study based on the control of Cacopsylla pyri adults and nymphs, which are pear pests, without harming the natural balance was carried out, and methods that will contribute to pear cultivation were presented in this context. This study was carried out to determine the population variation of Cacopsylla pyri adults and nymphs with yellow sticky traps in two different shades (traditional yellow sticky trap, no. 1023) in 2022, in pest-infested pear orchards in the village of Merkez/Örençay in Elazığ province. For each tree, four traps (north, south, west, east), three traps (south, north, middle) and one trap were hung simultaneously, and trap pest, in-tree adult and nymph counts were made in a 60-day period. All of datas has been recorded. The considering the results of the study; It has been determined that more adults are caught in the trees where the number of traps is hung, and as the number of traps decreases, the number of adults caught and the number of adults and nymphs in the tree decrease in parallel. It is valuable in terms of economy and sustainability of the study that the cost of traps is compared with other management costs within the aim of the study, in terms of positive contribution to the natural enemies of the pest.
