Details

Use this Box Tree Moth Trap to trap the box tree moths between April and September. Box Tree Moth overwinters as a caterpillars, hidden between box leaves that it has spun together with silk before emerging in the Spring to mate and lay eggs. There can be up to 3 generations of moths per year, so this means moths can be present from April until September. Use this funnel trap to trap the moths and protect your Box plants for an ENTIRE season.

Use Box Tree Moth Trap to protect your box plants if you know there are moths in the area or position then to monitor moth activity in your area. Adult Box Tree Moths has up to a 4cm wingspan and it usually white wings with a brown border around the wings, although the moths can sometimes be completely brown. This Box Tree Moth Trap uses a pheromone lure to attract the male moths and trap them - without the males, any eggs laid will be infertile leading to a reduction in the population. Use this trap between April and September - use 1 trap per 0.5 acre (2000 sqm) and position them close to where the box plants are growing and hung at a height of 1.5 -2m above the ground. Each trap is supplied with our unique SEASON LONG pheromone lure - the Ginko Buxux lure we include will attract moths for around 240 days unlike our competitors lures, which only last for approx 6 weeks, so it works out much better value for money in the long run PLUS you do not have to remember to change lures every 6 weeks! The lure is added to the top of the trap and secured with the tie included. 5cm of water is added to the trap and then as the moths are attracted by the lure they are caught in the funnel trap and are unable to escape. The trap should be emptied weekly. The pheromone lure is specific to the box tree moth, so other species will not be attracted. The trap is designed to be re-usable, so a replacement lure can be purchased the following season and the trap re-used.

The caterpillars and moths are all gone...for now!
Fast, efficient and friendly. I ordered some nematodes and a moth trap for a box hedge caterpillar infestation. The items arrived within 4 or 5 days and worked a treat. I called with some follow-up questions and the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable. The caterpillars and moths are all gone...for now!

Really pleased with the performance
I’ve been really really pleased with the performance however one of my traps went missing and I’ve had a small attack in that area so I’ve put out an extra couple of traps which I bought from you a week or so ago. Last year my many box topiaries and cloud hedge were devastated by the little blighters however my son in law who owns Gardening Express recommended your lures etc which I duly used I could not have been more pleased with the results.

Definitely not been a waste of money!
Back in mid April I installed one of your Box tree moth traps as a rearguard action to supplement manual removal of caterpillars assisted by your nematodes. I have to admit that, although the theory of a pheromone is sound, I was sceptical that it would work in practice. I checked the reservoir weekly but only increasingly murky water greeted my eyes. I cannot disguise my delight when, last Sunday, I found that the device had caught not one but three moths. I removed them and refilled the trap with fresh water. Yesterday a further three moths had been collected. So if you need an endorsement I am pleased to say that my £27.50 has definitely not been a waste of money!

They are very effective, lasting the whole caterpillar season.
My box tree moth trap lure arrived on the date I had chosen despite the Coronavirus crisis. I have used these for several years and they are very effective, lasting the whole caterpillar season. Recommended

Box Tree Moth Trap
Excellent customer service and fast delivery. Recently purchased Box tree moth traps. Box hedging had been decimated in a couple of weeks before we realised the cause. Purchased Xantari and traps. Want sure they worked at first but now captured male moths in all traps!

Box Tree Moth
So glad to have discovered your company with so many excellent products for gardening in an environmentally sensitive way. The nematodes for the control of Box Tree Moth caterpillar are really working (as opposed to anything chemical I have tried previously!) and the pheromone trap is collecting male moths. Excellent service, great speed of delivery, clear instructions for use of products.
