Chafer bugs are destructive pests that target areas such as lawns, parks and sport pitches.

The trap works by releasing a powerful pheromone lure that attracts adult chafer beetles and catches them via plastic vanes so that they cannot escape. It alerts gardeners that chafer beetles are present and reduces the amount of eggs laid in the surrounding area. Eggs would usually develop into chafer grubs which feed on grass roots, causing damage and attracting wildlife looking for grubs to eat such as birds and badgers.

This trap includes an attractant lure, covers half an acre (2000sqm) and the pheromone lasts 6-8 weeks. The trap is to be hung 50-100cm off the ground in May to destroy the pests during the flying season before they become destructive in the months around August and September. The lure is supplied in a liquid vial which will need to be cut off and placed in the trap.
