Complete monitoring trap for Swede Midge (Contarinia nasturtii)

Crop Type



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

Pack contains 4 lures to give a total of 24 weeks monitoring. This single pack is effective for a period long enough to cover the risk period from the pest.

Pack contains: 1 re-usable Delta traps, 4 pheromone lures, 8 sticky inserts.

How to Use

Suitable for use in any crop where Swede midge (Contarinia nasturtii) is a potential pest.

The swede midge monitoring trap should be setup from late May onwards to cover the potential midge flying period. Once setup, the trap should be checked every 2-3 days (i.e. Monday, Wednesday and Friday) and the number of caught adults recorded.

Trap placement: Place just above the height of the crop. The trap should be in place from before first generation of adults fly in late May until either October or harvest whichever is the earlier
Trap location: Place within the crop area
Trap density: Minimum of 2 traps per field. Pest population will vary with microclimate, in areas of more diverse microclimates higher trap density may be advised

The trap should be hung from a pole within the crop just above the height of the crop.

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.
