Plain Language Summary

This study used pheromone-baited traps deployed in hexagonal arrays and a walking bioassay to estimate the active space (i.e., the area sampled) of pheromone-baited traps for the moth Eoreuma loftini. Daily trap capture increased with increasing intertrap distance and trap interference occurred at intertrap distances less than 50 m. Similarly, in the walking bioassay the mean active space of pheromone-baited traps was 47.6 m.
