    Abstract

    We examined phototactic responses of dipteran insects, including Neoempheria ferruginea (Brunetti), Sciaridae, and Drosophila, using ultraviolet (365 nm), green (525 nm), and white wavelengths of a LED (light emitting diode) using a water-pan trap. The number of N. ferruginea captured (trap catches) were highest in the trap with ultraviolet LED. Then, we examined the effects of ultraviolet LED and surfactan(t 1% Tween 80) in the water-pan trap on the trap catches using generalized linear mixed model. Both ultraviolet LED and surfactant were shown to affect positively on the trap catches. Nevertheless, the LED variable had the highest effect on N. ferruginea trap catches. On the other hand, trap catches of Sciaridae and Drosophila were affected most by the surfactant.
