Yellow sticky traps are a non toxic way to control and monitor aphids, cucumber beetles, fruit flies, fungus gnats, leafhoppers, froghoppers, moths, whiteflies, flea beetles, leaf miners etc. An integral part of any integrated pest management program they can be used in greenhouses, homes, orchards, flower and vegetable gardens, anywhere insects are a problem. The glue does not dry out and the traps will last until the surface area is completely covered with insects, even through rain.
Our traps have a grid pattern on them to help you count and precisely determine population levels.
For many insects like fungus gnats the traps are also very effective when laid horizontally across the rim of a pot or strung horizontally in the garden. The bugs are more attracted to landing on the flat surface! You can cut them into smaller pieces as needed.
They store indefinitely until you need them.
The total surface area of each individual trap is 56 square inches.
Non poisonous and weatherproof.
Cut to whatever size you like for your needs.
Monitoring methods: Yellow sticky cards and potato pieces placed on potting media are good methods for monitoring adult and larval populations, respectively. For Fungus Gnats Sticky Traps are most effective when place horizontally on the potting media surface, although vertically positioned cards hung over the crop canopy are also effective and trap more of other types of insect pests as well. In greenhouses cards placed under the benches, close to intake vents, near doorways and outside the greenhouse can provide additional information to detect breeding areas. Continuous monitoring (weekly) can provide the following information: 1) first detection of low populations; 2) population density increases or decreases over time; 3) the level and length of suppression resulting from the implementation of suppression tactics.
