How it works

How it works

Mode of action

The Castellation Trap needs to be used in combination with Pherodis pheromone dispensers. The dispensers release a species-specific sex pheromone which lures the males of the particular pest into the trap. Once in the trap they cannot escape  and are easy to detect, count and identify. Trapping males also aids in reducing the number of eggs laid by females as they fail to mate.

Preparation

  • Place the pheromone in the cage and seal with the cap
  • Insert into the hole at the top of the lid and push down, making sure the cage is secure 
  • Insert the strap into holes at either side of the lid. NOTE: once inserted, the strap cannot be removed 
  • Place the cone inside the bucket For ease of fixing, hold the strap gently to one side, take the bucket and line up with the lid. Push together ensuring a secure fit. Slip clear strap between grooves at base of the bucket 
  • Hang with string from loops on the top of the lid 
  • A small amount of water with detergent can be added to the trap to ensure adults do not escape

  • Wash your hands after handling each type of pheromone
  • Weekly recordings of moth catches are advised
