Trap types were evaluated for monitoring plum curculio in both apple and cherry research plots during the 2002 growing season. Trap types included screen, intercept, standard pyramid, plastic pyramid, and kill traps. All trap types were baited with aggregation pheromone, plum essence, and enhanced volatile blend lures. Traps were deployed during the second week of April and were checked once or twice weekly through the fall. Trap performance was assessed based on total capture, time of first capture, capture throughout overwintered and summer generations, and ease of use.
