WHEN TO USE THE TRAP

In most seasons moths fly and mate on warm nights from late May until the end of July, although in some years activity may continue until well into August. In this case a 3rd lure and sticky insert may be needed. 

HOW TO USE THE TRAP

The trap should be assembled as in the diagrams (on the back of the pack). The sticky insert should be unfolded and placed sticky side up, in the base of the trap. The lure should be removed from the foil sachet and laid in the centre of the sticky insert. Ensure that the end flaps are secured. THE LURE WILL RELEASE SCENT FROM WHEN THE SACHET IS OPENED - DO NOT OPEN SACHET UNTIL THE LURE IS NEEDED. 

 

In a garden one trap should monitor up to 5 average size trees with a range of 15m (50ft)of the trap. It should be hung at around head height on the windward side of the tree (or group of trees).

After 5 week replace the sticky insert and lure, with the second set provided. Inspect the trap regularly. If you are catching more the 15 moths per week a suitable spray should be applied a week later, we recommend Resolva Bug Killer
