Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to determine potential biological control methods for Noctuidae. States that "the phenology of noctuid species was recorded in urban turfgrass sites along with the effectiveness of Bacillus thuringiensis application for their control." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "during 2006-07 in ten hectares of turfgrass (eight hectares in the net of tramline and two hectares in football courts) a net of 27 pheromone funnel traps was set with the pheromones of nine noctuid species." Explains that "the collection and record of the captured adult males were done every week and the replacement of the pheromones every two months." Reports that "the control of the noctuid larvae in the lawns was achieved by spraying with Bacillus thuringiensis compounds after any increase in the total number of the captures that overtook the 30 adults." Concludes that "in the...study it was recorded [that] the presence of eleven noctuid species that could cause damages in urban turfgrasses. The dominant species was Spodoptera exigua. The control of the noctuid larvae in the lawns was achieved by spraying with Bacillus thuringienis compounds after every pick in the total number of the captures."
