Attracts and traps Citrus Leafminers
- A useful tool for determining when moths are flying and depositing eggs.
- Help to determine when male moths are active (best time to apply insecticide).
- Use at least one pheromone trap per 5 acres.
- Citrus leafminer moths may be captured in traps almost any time during the growing season, however, this species is most abundant when citrus is flushing in the summer and fall months.
Note: Check traps every 2-3 days for moths.
Placing traps is easy:
- Attach hanger. Grasp trap by top and bottom flaps. Pull apart to form trap (do not touch glue).
- Open lure packet; place one lure on the inside upper surface of the trap (without touching the attractant lure) and hang the trap 1-2 feet inside the tree canopy at about chest height.
Placing and managing traps: Place traps in trees 1 or 2 weeks before bud break, in early spring. Check for moths every 2-3 days and apply appropriate treatments to control moths. Recycle or dispose of traps when full of insects, or at least every 6 weeks.
Note: In case of contact with glue, remove with vegetable oil.
