Abstract

The study aimed to evaluate used traps performance on attractiveness and captured Apoïdea in some pepper cropping systems in studied area.  Some traps were established (sweep net, triplet of yellow, white and blue cups) in Kisangani and surrounding. Three treatments were used per site: T0: 0.5 ha of area not yet cultivated (control), T1: 0.5 ha of pepper, T2: 0.5 ha of mixing pepper-maize-cassava. Observed results showed that in Kisangani and its surrounding area, the yellow cups were the most attracted traps compared to white and blue cups in term of number of individual trapped.
