Abstract: Light traps can be used for monitoring of rice pests, although in the other hand is suspected to reduce the predators population from many rice areas. The research was carried out at the Sukamandi Research Station of Indonesian Center for Rice Research (ICRR) in 2013 to study the effect of the power capacity of light trap of mercury (ML-160 watt) BSE-G3 model and solar cell (CFL-20 watt) and measured the relationship of predators and rice pests that caught in the light trap. The results showed that rice pests caught on the light trap of mercury (ML-160 watt) BSE-G3 model was higher than rice pests caught on the light trap of solar cell (CFL-20 watt). The light traps reduce of rice pests population, but do not reduce population of predators and do not disturb to predators performance. The flight of P. fuscipes positively correlated to flight of rice pests that caught on both light trap of mercury (ML-160 watt) BSE-G3 model and on the light trap of solar cell (CFL-20 watt) with low coefficient determination adjusted 0.3471 and 0.4592 respectively. The flight of Coccinella sp positively correlated to flight of rice pests on the light trap of mercury and light trap of solar cell with a low coefficient determination adjusted 0.4189 and 0.3978 respectively. The flight of O. nigrofasciata did not determined by the flight of rice pests because the coefficient determination was negative.
