Abstract

Seven species of pheromone trap collection of Microlepidoptera pest presents the results of the everyday function of the daily temperature range in the study. Between 2004 and 2010, Csalomon type pheromone traps were operating in Bodrogkisfalud (48°10’N; 21°21E; Borsod-Abaúj Zemplén County, Hungary, Europe). The data were processed of following species: Spotted Tentiform Leafminer (Phyllonorycter blancardella Fabricius, 1781), Hawthorn Red Midget Moth (Phyllonorycter corylifoliella Hübner, 1796), Codling Moth (Cydia pomonella Linnaeus, 1758), Peach Twig Borer (Anarsia lineatella Zeller, 1839), European Vine Moth (Lobesia botrana Denis et Schiffermüller, 1775), Oriental Fruit Moth (Grapholita molesta Busck, 1916) and Plum Fruit Moth (Grapholita funebrana Treitschke, 1846). Our results suggest that pheromone trap catches of the species examined are in positive correlation with the daily temperature ranges. The relation can be characterized with is linear, logarithmic and exponential functions.
