FAQ

about the product

The Box tree moth (Cydalima perspectalis) is a devastating pest of box plants (Boxus spp.). Caterpillar feed on the leaves, which can result in complete defoliation and die back of the plant.

1. Add 5 cm of water and a drop of detergent to the base
2. Open the pheromone lure sachet and place it in the cage at the top.
3. Hang the trap 1.5 ‚Äď 2.0 meters above the ground.
4. Replace the lure every 6 weeks (refills available).
5. Check the trap regularly for moths. Empty and replace the water.

When adult moths are flying, April to October.

How does a box tree moth trap work?

The lure inside emits the female box tree moth pheromone, which attracts the male. The male gets caught in the trap and dies. This prevents breeding and egg laying, and in turn the hatching of more caterpillars.
