A highly attractive pheromone lure designed specifically to attract box tree caterpillar moth into traps. These moths lay eggs that hatch into caterpillars which cause extensive damage to box tree hedges.
The pheromone attracts the male box tree moth into the trap. Reducing male numbers effectively stops reproduction, breaking the life cycle giving control over the pest.
Box tree flying season is between April to October when there can be up to three generations of the pest. Each lure lasts up to six weeks when used with one of our unique traps. These replacement lures can be used as needed to cover a whole season and reduce damage to your box tree hedges. Each trap is supplied with a sticky card to place in the bottom of the trap, this helps retain moths in the trap.
Each lure is supplied in a foil sachet. Remove lure from sachet and place in the lure cage at the top of the trap. If lures are to be stored or not used on receipt, store in a fridge or freezer.
