Abstract

Captured native male moths of the lesser peachtree borer (LPTB), Synanthedon pictipes (Grote and Robinson) were released at the center of a circular 800-ha area containing evenly spaced (6.5/ha) large wing traps. The avg recovery at this trap density was 20.3%; however, 97% were recaptured in 15 traps located within a 0.6-km radius of the release point. On the basis of this recapture rate, an estimated 16.6% of the native male population were captured during the season. Of those captured, 77% were caught in traps located near or within peach orchards.
