BACKGROUND Nowadays, physical methods such as insect-trapping to control pests are being paid more and more attentions. In order to make clear how to combine pesticides with insect-trapping lamp reasonably and how much pesticide amount can be cut down, five treatments: (1) CK, only used pesticides; (2) LM, only used insect-trapping lamp; (3) LM1, insect-trapping lamp + one time pesticides (4) LM2, insect-trapping lamp + two times pesticides; (5) LM3, insect-trapping lamp + three times pesticides were arranged in a winter wheat -summer maize rotation system of Eastern China. RESULTS The results showed that reducing pesticides by 25-35%, insect-trapping lamp could well control the insect population and the yields were not decreased however increased, in which pesticides were applied only at 2 days before winter wheat planting, winter wheat flowering and summer maize big flared stage, respectively. Cutting 35-65% pesticides had no adverse effect on crop yields, however could reduce the cost for pest control and get the highest economic benefit. Using none pesticides in the insect-trapping lamp control area, the annual yields still reached more than 15 t·hm-2. CONCLUSION Pesticides if used timely and at appropriate stage could be largely reduced with the help of insect-trapping lamp.
