The studies which were effected by different authors enabled to be published some articles which include scientific results related to the most important defoliator of coniferae - the nun moth Lymantria monacha L., 1758. In this work the researches had an applicative character, with the view to using the results in drawing up a plan for monitoring and control the populations of Lymantria monacha L., 1758, by making use of pheromone bait traps. At the same time, the researches had in view to get new scientific information in order to improve the methods of controlling the pest, existent at the moment and of tracing the focuses of this pest, prejudicial to the forest domain of Sibiu county (Romania). The studies enabled also to be tracked the dynamics of the population of Lymantria monacha L., 1758 and to notice that the male moths can be attracted by using pheromone bait to open areas, 200-250 m distance from the border of the forest. The studies were effected in the spruce and fir arboretum which cover 70 percent of the forest, aged between 50 and 125 years.The researches effected in the last 5 years (2011-2015) aimed at the monitoring of this month, the dynamics of its population, the efficiency of capturing the male moths and the way of installing the pheromone traps in the domain of the state Forest Range Miercurea Sibiului and the private Forest Range Tilișca, totalizing 14,932.37 hectares forest.
