Abstract:
Invasive species are one of the major and most rapidly growing threats to agriculture, of these A. rugioperculatus (RSW) was a feeding pest that causes stress to the host plant by removing water and nutrients, as well as production of honeydew, which covers the surface of leaves results in reduced photosynthesis of the plant. Present investigation was carried out in Guava orchard at COH, Venkataramannagudem to evaluate the attraction efficiency of RSW towards different colour sticky traps (Yellow, Blue, Green, White, Black, Red and Brown) in 2 seasons, where in each season experiment was repeated twice. The results revealed that yellow sticky traps attract more number of RSW (34.39 and 40.83 adults/15 days in winter and 43.31 and 40.85 adult/15days seasons in summer, respectively), irrespective of the season when compared to all the other stick traps tested.
