An efficacious trap for seedcorn maggot (SCM) adults could aid in the management of this pest. White to yellow-tinted sticky cards are an effective and efficient trap for SCM adults, but synthetic, olfactory-stimulant lures have also recently become available. The authors conducted field experiments at four locations (Painter, Virginia; Georgetown, Delaware; Rosemount, Minnesota; and Tifton, Georgia) to evaluate the relative efficacy of the ChemTica Internacional P316 Seedcorn and Onion Maggot synthetic lures to attract Delia spp. flies.
