Product Overview

Includes:
One Gypsy Moth Trap
One Gypsy Moth Lure

The Gypsy Moth Trap is an effective weapon against the adult gypsy moth during the summer mating season. When used over several seasons, the trap is an effective tool for reducing the overall moth and caterpillar populations.

Gypsy Moths are one of the most destructive pests of our urban forests, stripping trees such as oak, crab apple, poplars and hundreds of other trees and shrubs. The Gypsy Moth Trap is designed to help the public avoid applying pesticides indiscriminately to control Gypsy Moths. It is simple, easy to use and utilizes powerful pheromone lures to attract Gypsy Moths and detect outbreaks, so you can use less pesticides. The Trap itself includes one packet of Gypsy Moth Lure.

The trap works by disrupting the gypsy moth's reproductive cycle by attracting and trapping the adult moth before mating can occur. Each mated female can produce as many as 1,000 caterpillars the following spring - caterpillars that can strip your shade trees and ornamentals bare making them more vulnerable to secondary assault by other insects and diseases which can kill them.

How the Trap Works:

The Gypsy Moth Trap contains a special attractant which releases a highly purified form of the adult gypsy moth sex lure. Since the female gypsy moth does not fly, she instead releases minute amounts of the sex lure (pheromone) to attract the flying male moth for the purpose of mating. The Gypsy Moth Trap pulls male gypsy moths in from a ¼-acre area to the trap which traps the male moths before they reach the waiting female.

Gypsy Moth Traps should be first hung in early spring. The trap is effective as long as the moths are active and from late April through to late September.

When placing the trap, choose a tree and a location on the tree where air currents can circulate the smell of the attractant freely. The Gypsy Moth Trap should be hung from a tree or placed on a stand approximately 4 to 5 feet from the ground. The south side of the tree is the best location.

For best results, the Gypsy Moth Trap should be used as part of an Integrated Pest Management program which also includes biological control treatments and traps (bug bands) against caterpillars.

    Gypsy Moth Trap

    Works fantastic!! My customers all have nothing but great results with the trap. Good design and the lure looks like it won't do much but man oh man... male moths just can't resist it !! My only complaint is not being able to buy more.

    These work awesome! Had the lure you attach under the lid, then fill the container with soap and water. As soon as I put it together and took it outside to hang the male moths were flying all around me. We clean it out once a week. Very thankful hopefully these will help next year's infestation.

    This thing is amazing. I can't believe how many it caught the first day we had them up. We have 4 of them and want to buy 4 more when they are back in stock.
