How to Use

Suitable for use in any crop where Diamondback moth (DBM, Plutella xylostella) is a potential pest.

The trap is designed to monitor adult moth activity which then allows improved application timing of plant protection products. The Diamondback moth monitoring trap should be setup from the beginning of May until September to cover the moth flying period. Once setup, the trap should be checked at least once or twice a week and the number of caught adults recorded. Monitoring for the presence of Diamondback moths should also include scouting on the underside of leaves for caterpillar activity.

The trap should be hung at a height just above the crop to allow easy access.

Traps should be checked at least once or twice a week and number of trapped moths recorded. After recording trapped numbers during scouting, trapped moths should be removed from sticky insert to improve future catches and reduce chance of miscounting in following assessments.

Replace the lure and sticky insert after 6 weeks.

Do not open foil sachet until you want to use the pheromone lure. Until use, store unopened sticky inserts and pheromone lures in a cool dry location.

Traps can be used over several years with the addition of fresh replacement pheromones
