How it works

How it works

Mode of action

Pherodis dispensers release a species-specific sex pheromone or lure, and need to be used in combination with an insect trap, the type of trap depends on the species to be monitored. The species-specific sex pheromone lures males of the target pest into the trap. Trapping males also aids in reducing the number of eggs laid by females as they fail to mate. For some pests, Pherodis dispensers contain lures which attract both sexes of the target species.

Application

  • Wash your hands between assembling pheromone traps for different pest species
  • During the first few days following the installation of a new capsule higher numbers may be caught due to a temporarily higher release of the pheromone from the new capsule
