Tortrix Moth Trap
This safe pheromone trap catches the male moth, stopping fertilisation. Caterpillars of the Carnation Tortrix and Cyclamen Moth attack a wide range of ornamental plants they bind the leaves causing damage and stopping growth.
Once damage by the Carnation Tortrix moth is seen, control is very difficult as the caterpillar is protected by the 'webbing'.
Caterpillars of the Carnation Tortrix and Cyclamen Moth attack a wide range of ornamental plants they bind the leaves causing damage and stopping growth.
Damage is commonly seen on a wide range of plants including: Asparagus Fern, Bay, Begonia, Camellia, Carnations, Citurs, Crassula, Cyclamen, Ivy, Kalanchoe, Mimosa, Oleander, Perlargonium, Plumbago, and Peach.
Each trap comes with 2 lures and 2 sticky inserts. The lure and insert need to be replaced every 5-6 weeks.
Assemble the trap by opening it out and folding in the ends of the base, inserting the tabs through the slots provided. Open up a sticky base and lay on the floor of the trap. Remove a lure from the foil sachet and lay in the centre of the sticky area. The trap should be suspended above the plants which are at risk. Check the trap frequently.
The Lure and Sticky base should be changed every 5-6 weeks. One trap will give you protection for 10-12 weeks. Additional refills are available should you require additional protection for the same year or following season.
When to use: Moths fly during the day, in early summer and again in early Autumn. In a heated greenhouse or conservatory they may be active all year round.
