The Scarce Bordered Straw (Helicoverpa armigera Hübner) is one of the most dangerous insect pests in most part of the world. The relationship between the light-trap catch of Scarce Bordered Straw (Helicoverpa armigera Hübner) and the height of tropopause was investigated in our study. The light-trap catch data originated from Hungarian national light-trap network. The traps worked between 1993 and 2004. Categories were created from the height of tropopause data. We calculated daily relative catch values using the number of caught insect individuals in every generation. The relative catch was paired to the values of tropopause height every day. We correlated the daily catch results pertaining to the daily values of tropopause. After it these values were summarized, averaged and depicted in a figure. We found close connection between the tropopause height and light-trap catch of Scarce Bordered Straw (Helicoverpa armigera Hübner).
