Use the Raspberry Beetle Trap for monitoring and trapping of raspberry beetles in combination with species-specific lure.
Raspberry beetle (Byturus tomentosus).
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.
One trap with hanging string.
