Abstract:
The laboratory experiment was conducted to evaluate the attraction of Fly Trap prepared by methyl eugenol was mixed with nanofiber with the help of electro spinning. In laboratory experiment for testing effect of various wind velocities (0.25, 0.82, 1.23, 1.60 and 2.17) on prepared nano materials controlled pedestal fan was utilized. Total 7 fruitflies were released in each conduct. During experiment laboratory temperature and humidity was maintained at 28 °C ± 2 and relative humidity 65±4. The effect of independent variables (time, distance, wind and velocity) was analyzed through Pearson’s Correlation test. This revealed the response of fruitflies with wind highly significant (r -0.6838, p <1.0000), response of fruitflies with distance was moderate, negative and non-significant relationship (r -0.1736, p <0.0529) is shown. A moderate, negative, but highly significant relationship of flies response was noted with time (r-0.3791, p <0.001). It was noticed when wind velocity was increased then flies were taking more time to reach at the destination.
