APS Funnel Trap


Product Description:

The funnel trap, as the name implies, is designed so that insects attracted by the pheromone lure placed at the base of the canopy fall into a funnel shaped catchment area down into a holding polythene bag. The shape of the funnel prevents the insects from escaping holding them until the trap is inspected.

How They Work:

The male moths which are attracted by the female pheromone lure placed at the base of canopy enter the trap and fall into the polythene bag and get killed. The shape of the funnel prevents the insects from escaping holding them until the trap is inspected. These traps are installed in the fields at the rate of 5-7 traps per hectare for monitoring. Traps should normally be attached to stakes at crop height and placed within the crop with at least 50m between each trap. To avoid affecting the efficiency of the trapping system it is strongly recommended that traps be used only for the one species. Never use the dispensers for other insect species in these traps
