Traps baited with 2-(E)-nonen-1-ol alone or in combination with other compounds caught large numbers of males of both the vine chafer, Anomala vitis Fabr. and the margined vine chafer, A. dubia Scop. (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae), vineyard and orchard pests. In a dosage test, the largest numbers were caught by traps baited with 10 mg of 2-(E)-nonen-1-ol, which was the highest dosage tested. This is the first report on male attractants for chafer species occurring in Europe.
