Several sampling methods were used to detect differences in arthropod diversity and parasitism of grape berry moth, Endopiza viteana (Clemens), in vineyards using different pest management programs. Pest management programs were: calendar insecticide program, scouting to improve timing of insecticides, replacing insecticide sprays with Exosex dispensers for mating disruption, and total abandonment. Data from pit fall traps (vineyard edge and center), Malaise traps (edge) and grape berry moth eggs on wax paper (edge and center) were used to quantify specific arthropods at ground and canopy levels, and flight and parasitism rates of egg and larval parasites of grape berry moth.
