Assessing the Potential of a new monitoring tool ("Zappa" trap) for managing sucking pests on cotton

This project utilised Zappa Trap and field sampling to monitor mirid activity in the field. There are gaps in the cotton industry’s understanding of mirid ecology and behaviour (including feeding behaviour) and the influence of wind and other environmental impacts on the dispersion of insects and therefore the best positioning of traps within the farm and fields.
