ABSTRACT
The experiment was conducted in the 2006–2008 time period, in Nienadówka near Rzeszów, Poland (50°11’ N, 22°06’ E). The high suitability of light traps for the monitoring of Ostrinia nubilalis Hbn. moth flights on maize fields was shown. These light traps were compared to the pheromone types of traps; the “delta” model, and the “funnel” with a pheromone dispenser containing Z–11–tetradecenyl acetate (series ONC036A and ONC048A/107). In the light trap, the first moths were found in the second decade or third decade of June. The population peak was in the first decade or second decade of July, and the end of the flight in August. In September 2007 and 2008, single O. nubilalis moths collected in the light trap indicated the presence of a small second pest generation. The first male moths were captured in the pheromone traps in the third decade of June or the first decade of July, with a slightly marked population peak in the first or second decade of July. The moth flight ended in the last decade of July. The first egg clusters of O. nubilalis were usually recorded 4–7 days after the first moths were found in the light trap. In the pheromone traps, the first male O. nubilalis individuals were usually found a few days following the oviposition of the first pest egg clusters, except in 2006, when the moths presence was observed in the field 2–3 days before the first eggs were found on maize plants
