How it works

How it works

Mode of action

The Funnel Trap Economy 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 dispenser in the cage and seal with the cap
  • Insert cage into the hole at the top of the lid and push down, making sure the cage is secure 
  • Insert the lid into the funnel and push down to ensure a secure fit 
  • Insert strap into holes at either side of the funnel. NOTE: once inserted, the strap cannot be removed

  • Feed the string throught the loops on top of the lid

Application

  • If using traps for different species of moths, keep the traps at least 50 metres apart to avoid interference of the pheromones
  • Wash your hands after handling each type of pheromone
  • Weekly recordings of moth catches are advised
