Akash Nirmal, Yogesh Kumar Sidar, Rupesh Gajbhiye and Jaya Laxmi Ganguli

The effects of moon light phases on light trap catches of insects was investigated by using simple incandescent light trap model with tungsten filament 60 watt bulb at the experimental research farm, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (C.G.). The present Study observed that the insect population was highly significant and negatively correlated ascending phase (r = -0.923) and during descending phase but non-significant correlation (r = -0.225) of trap catches with the lunar cycle was observed.
