Product Details

Helps protect buxus from attack

How it works:

Vitax Box Tree Moth Trap consists of a trap with 2 pheromone lures to attract the male box tree moths, monitoring and helping control this serious pest. The lure attracts male moths which then drop through the funnel into the trap. Minor infestations may be adequately controlled by preventing males from mating with female moths. For severe infestations the monitoring trap provides warning of infestation allowing timely control measures to be introduced.

Usage Period:

The box tree moth is generally active from mid-April to October, peaking between mid-July to the end of September. The moth has a wingspan of 38-40mm with white wings with a broad bronze brown border. Occasionally the wings can be almost entirely brown with a couple of white spots on the forewing. There can be up to 3 generations of caterpillars during the season.
