The onion thrips, Thrips tabaci Lindeman (Thysanoptera: Thripidae), leafhoppers, Empoasca decipiens Paoli (Homoptera: Cicadellidae) are significant common pests on cotton crops in Turkey. A two-year study was conducted to evaluate the relative attraction of thrips and leafhopper species to various color traps in the cotton growing areas of Hatay province. In 2006, two trials consisting of yellow, orange, blue, red, white and green color traps were conducted in Kirikhan district. In 2007, the first trial containing blue, orange, red and yellow color traps was conducted in Kirikhan district. The second trial including blue, white, yellow and green color traps was conducted in Reyhanli district. The yellow sticky color traps were significantly attractive for thrips species in 2006, but not in 2007. In 2007, the blue sticky color traps were significantly attractive for species in both trials. On the other hand, in the second trial in 2007, the white sticky color traps were significantly attractive for thrips species. The green and red color traps were not attractive for thrips species. The yellow sticky color traps were significantly attractive for leafhoppers species in 2006-2007. The orange sticky color traps were the second attractive for leafhoppers species in 2006 and 2007. The green sticky color traps at the last trial were significantly attractive for leafhoppers species in 2007, while they were not attractive previous three trials. The white, blue and red sticky color traps were not attractive for them in both years. In conclusion, the yellow, blue and white sticky color traps for thrips species and the yellow and orange sticky color traps for leafhoppers species are strongly suggested for monitoring their population densities in cotton crops.
