Vertical position of traps influences captures of eastern cherry fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae)
Florida Entomologist 89 (1), 80-82
Abstract: In 2002 and 2003, we compared the effect of three trap heights on captures of R. cingulata in Michigan cherry orchards. Overall, significantly more flies were captured on unbaited Pherocon AM traps hung at 4.6 m in the canopy of cherry trees than on traps hung at 2.1 m or at a low position of 1.2 m, suggesting that R. cingulata is more abundant in the upper portion of the host tree canopy.
