Collection description

The attraction of light of different colors (white, infrared, ultraviolet, red) applied on sticky traps modified adding entomological glue and insecticide was tested on a Lepidoptera (Cadra cautella), a Diptera (Drosophila melanogaster), and two Coleoptera (Sitophilus zeamais and Tribolium castaneum) released inside a shipping container. Overall, insects showed attraction for all the colors except for infrared light. C. cautella showed no preference among white, ultraviolet or red; D. melanogaster preferred ultraviolet and white over red; beetles had a much greater attraction to red. Lastly, the stronger entomological glue improved catches of beetles whereas insecticide has no effect.
