Traps are a useful tool for determining when moths are flying and depositing eggs. Use at least one pheromone trap per 5 acres. Check the traps weekly for moths. 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. These traps will help you determine when male moths are flying. That is when to apply insecticide for best results.
2 Traps, 2 Trap Hangers, 2 Pheromone Lures
Attach hanger. Grasp trap by top and bottom flaps. Pull part to form trap (do not touch glue). Open lure packet; place one lure on the inside, upper surface of the trap (Do not touch the attractant lure). Hang the trap 1 to 2 feet inside the tree canopy at about chest height. Place traps in trees 1 or 2 weeks before bud break, in early spring. Check for moths every 2 to 3 days and apply appropriate treatments to control moths. Recycle or dispose of traps when full of insects, or at least every 6 weeks. In case of contact, remove glue with vegetable oil.
