Earlier studies have demonstrated that among the eight differently colored ground traps tested in the greenhouse, black colored traps were the most effective compared with the performances of brown, yellow, red, grey, blue, white, and green traps. In the present study, efficiency of ground traps with different shades of black (black thick, pure black, mix black and black medium) were evaluated in the greenhouse for the capture of Hylotrupes bajulus. Black thick colored traps caught significantly higher H. bajulus than traps with other shades of black. Therefore, black thick colored ground traps are recommended to use for monitoring and mass trapping H. bajulus in museums and human dwellings.
