High-capacity trap holds hundreds of moths
Gypsy moth caterpillars can cause damage to many different species of trees by defoliating the canopy. They prefer oaks but will also feed on many different trees and shrubs, both hardwoods and conifers. This trap effectively captures male adult Gypsy moths and can be used to monitor for pesticide applications. Pheromone lures need to be purchased separately (Item No. 160103) and are effective up to four weeks. Contact your county extension agent or local university's entomology department for placement times and quantities. USA made.
NOTE: Insect traps and lures provide an early warning system to detect adult insect emergence. They are not intended to reduce the insect population.
