The field trial was conducted to compare products from different manufacturers as well as different compositions of pheromone to attract male Litchi Fruit Moths (Cryptophlebia peltastica) in litchi orchards in South Africa. The trial took place during the 2004 litchi production season. Male Litchi Fruit Moths were successfully caught throughout the trial. The pheromone that clearly attracted the most male moths contained 95% Z-8:5% E-8 pheromone compound.
