Project description
There are two main objectives of the project: To determine whether or not specific toxic baits are more or equally attractive to four ant species than a 25% sugar solution under field conditions (bait preference tests). To determine whether or not specific toxic baits are able to keep vines free of four ant species for approximately 3 months (full-scale field trial). Field work will start in September 2003, and therefore no results are available to date.
