Complete monitoring trap for Fruit Tree Tortrix (Archips podana)

Crop Type

Top Fruit


Attracts male moths with species-specific pheromone. Allows accurate identification of pest species where tortrix caterpillars are difficult to differentiate between species. Monitoring allows easy determination of risk to crop and if further control actions are required.

Pack contains 3 lures to give a total of 18 weeks monitoring. This single pack is effective for a period long enough to cover both generations.

Pack contains: 1 re-usable Delta trap, 3 pheromone lures, 3 sticky inserts.

How to Use

Suitable for use in any crop where Fruit tree tortrix (Archips podana) is a potential pest.

The trap is designed to monitor adult moth activity which then allows improved application timing of plant protection products. The Fruit tree tortrix trap should be setup from the beginning of June onwards to cover the Fruit tree tortrix moth flying period. First generation adults fly June to July and second generation adults flying August to September. Second generation near to harvest damage (September and October) is higher in years when warmer weather increases the speed of development during the first generation earlier in the year. Monitoring for the presence of Fruit tree tortrix should also include scouting for rolled leaves as a result of caterpillar activity.

The trap should be hung from a branch within the crop at head height 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 (sold separately.)
