dc.description.abstract [EN] Given the social importance related to the red palm weevil, Rhynchophorus ferrugineus Olivier (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), efforts are being made to develop new control methods, such as the deployment of trapping systems. In this work, the efficacy of a new black pyramidal trap design (Picusan) has been verified in comparison with white and black buckets. In addition, the attractant and synergistic effect of ethyl acetate (EtAc) at different release levels has been evaluated under field conditions. The results show that Picusan traps captured 45% more weevils than bucket-type traps, offering significantly better trapping efficacy. The addition of water to traps baited with palm tissues was found to be essential, with catches increasing more than threefold compared with dry traps. EtAc alone does not offer attractant power under field conditions, and the release levels from 57 mg/d to 1 g/d have no synergistic effect with ferrugineol. Furthermore, significantly fewer females were captured when EtAc was released at 2 g/d. The implications of using EtAc dispensers in trapping systems are discussed. es_ES
dc.description.sponsorship We thank Ecovisa (Godelleta) and Jose Maria Carrero from "Viveros Campo Arenal" (Manises) for providing us with their facilities to conduct the field trials. We are also grateful to the whole Tragsa team and especially to Jose Juan Lopez Calatayud for field and technical assistance, and for providing us with the insects for the laboratory trials. Finally, thanks to Helen Warburton for English editing. The research leading to these results has received funding from the 7th European Union Framework Programme under grant agreement no. FP7 KBBE 2011-5-289566 (PALM PROTECT) and from the Generalitat Valenciana (Spain). en_EN
