The honeydew moth (HM), Cryptoblabes gnidiella Mill. (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) is a serious pest on pomegranate in Turkey. Pheromone traps, baited with 1 mg (Z)-11-hexadecenal (Z11-16:Ald), (E)-11-hexadecenal (E11-16:Ald), (Z)-13-octadecenal (Z13-18:Ald), and (E)-13-octadecenal (E13-18:Ald) impregnated in rubber septa were used for determination of the seasonal flight activity of this pest in two districts of Hatay province, Turkey. After two years of the study, the pest was found in ten sampled sites. The seasonal activity of the pest was low in May and November, while it increased from June to October in both years. The percentages of the total caught over this period were in May to June (22%), July to September (54%) and October to December (24%) in 2010, and in May to June (25%), July to September (63%) and October to December (12%) in 2011. The seasonal flight activity of this pest was recorded from May through December and thus the pest has considered to have four overlapping generations per year; the first in May to June, the second in July, the third in August-September and the fourth in October-November on pomegranate orchards in Hatay province of Turkey.
Key words: honeydew moth, pheromones traps, pomegranate, Turkey.
