Delta sticky trap with pheromone is a cheap and simple trap to capture and monitoring of horse chestnut leaf miner butterflies (Cameraria ohridella).
The trap is used for self-hang the lower crown of the tree using the supplied wire hanger. Trap can be placed since mid-April and is the best when we have growing trees. Traps should be hung on the tree until the autumn. Checking the traps it permits the first outlet of horse chestnut leaf miner butterflies and allows deciding whether the assumption of band-adhesive spray on a tree.Traps should be placed at the bottom of the crown of the tree or on the lowest branches. Use 1 to 3 traps per tree, depending on the size of the crown.
After forming a trap in the shape of a trapezoid and flexion side panels to trap insert the supplied glue. The trap contains 8 glue bourds (4 double-glued).
You must remove one of the double contributions and distribute them. One of them lie on the floor of the trap top of the adhesive layer. The second contribution should be folded in half an adhesive layer to each other and use it later replacing already used input. Attach the trap to a tree branch with a wire sticking out of the trap hanger. Traps should be placed at the bottom of the crown of the tree or on the lowest branches. Use 1 to 3 traps per tree, depending on the size of the crown.
Regularly replace the attractant pheromone which operates under natural conditions 4 to 6 weeks. At the time of the pheromone must be replaced in the trap glue or if it is filled with insects.
This is enough time to catch and remove one generation of horse chestnut leaf miner butterflies.
