How it works

How it works

Mode of action

The Raspberry Beetle Trap combines visual and olfactory cues to attract raspberry beetles. The white cross vanes of the funnel trap mimic a giant raspberry flower which, in combination with the species-specific flower-volatile lure attracts the raspberry beetle into the trap. Once in the trap, they cannot escape and are easy to detect, count and identify.
