The effect of selected baits on the efficacy of a sticky trap in the evaluation of german cockroach blattella germanica populations


, : The effect of selected baits on the efficacy of a sticky trap in the evaluation of german cockroach blattella germanica populations. Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society 55(1): 86-90

Extensive evaluations were conducted in 558 homes located in Macy and Omaha, Nebraska [USA] to measure the effects of selected baits in sticky traps as a method of monitoring German cockroach [B. germanica (L.)] populations. A mean of 34 cockroaches was caught/trap per night during the course of this study. The following baits were tested: white bread, Mr. Sticky Chrysalis Powder, Mr. Sticky Roach Bait, no bait, boiled raisins, potato, apple, dry dog food, German cockroach feces, German cockroach, dry yeast, banana, and Osage Orange (a suspected repellent). Cockroaches caught/trap per night were compared (minimum of 30 replications/bait) and statistically analyzed. White bread as bait attracted significantly (P = 0.10) more cockroaches to traps than did: no bait, dog food, cockroach feces, apple, yeast and Mr. Sticky Chrysalis Powder. Osage Orange also attracted significantly (P = 0.10) more cockroaches than Mr. Sticky Chrysalis Powder. White bread is the bait of choice when the Mr. Sticky trap is to be used to monitor German cockroach populations and insecticide treatment efficacy.
