Box Tree Moth Trap with 2 pheromone lures
This trap will capture and kill the adult male moths. This will reduce mating, and therefore egg laying, to control populations.
Box tree moths are found between April-October. Gardeners will mainly come across the insects as caterpillars and eggs on box plants. Caterpillars are green-yellow with black heads and develop dark stripes as they mature.
Each lure is active for around 6 weeks - replacement lures can be found here. The trap itself can be used for many years. A yellow sticky pad is included to place within the trap to catch the moths so they cannot escape.
Each trap covers around 180m2 and should be placed at least 20m apart. They can be hung next to a box tree at about 0.5-2 metres height.
This trap come with 2 lures which after assembly should placed into the plastic cage at the top.
Place the sticky card place in the bottom of the bucket to keep the captured moths in the trap and keep the spare lure in the fridge until needed.
Place the traps at one per 150Msq at a height of approx 1.5m near the box tree plants.
Change the lure every 6-8 weeks and empty the bucket. Spare lures found here.
