Leek Moth Trap

£9.99 £8.99

Use the Leek Moth Trap to attract and catch male Leek moths. Leek Moth is becoming more of a problem with its larvae attacking leeks, onions, shallots and garlic. Control these moths by positioning a pheromone trap when the moths are active normally May to June and August to October. The trap contains a sticky board which catches the male moths and a pheromone lure – the more male moths that are caught, the less there are available for mating with females. These traps are pesticide free and will not harm beneficial insects PLUS they are designed to be re-usable, so simply insert a new refill each year. Each Leek Moth Trap includes the trap itself, 2 x sticky inserts and 2 x lures, which is enough for 1 season. SOLD OUT

Full Description

Use the Leek Moth Trap to attract and catch male Leek moths. Leek Moth is becoming more of a problem with its larvae attacking leeks, onions, shallots and garlic. Once the moth has laid the eggs, the resulting larvae will attack the foliage and then tunnel into the stems. Control these moths by positioning a pheromone trap 50cam above the crop (each trap will protect 1 hectare) when the moths are active – there are 2 generations a year, so position the traps May to June and August to October (this later hatching tends to be more abundant). These traps are designed to be re-usable, so simply insert a new refill each year. These traps are pesticide free and will not harm beneficial insects.

Each Leek Moth Trap includes the trap itself, 2 x sticky inserts and 2 x lures, which is enough for 1 season. The sticky insert is unfolded and placed sticky side up, in the base of the trap, The pheromone lure is then removed from its foil sachet and positioned laid in the centre of the sticky insert. After 5 weeks replace the sticky insert and lure with the 2nd set included giving 10 weeks protection.

N.B. If lots of moths are being caught it is a good idea to cover the crop with netting – CLICK HERE
