General information

When to use Deltatrap?

To monitor butterflies/moths or male alate mealy bugs inside or outside the greenhouse.

How does Deltatrap work?

Deltatrap is a pheromone trap to be used in combination with Pherodis pheromone dispensers. The pheromone dispenser releases a species-specific sex pheromone to lure the adult males of the pest that is being targeted, into the trap. Once in the trap, they stick to the adhesive plate and are easy to detect, count and identify.

How to use Deltatrap

Application Deltatrap

How to assemble the trap:

  • Fold the delta trap into a triangle.
  • Lay a sticky trap on the bottom of the trap, with the adhesive surface facing upwards.
  • Fold both edges at the base of the triangle inwards.
  • Hang the trap in the appropriate place.

How to install the trap:

  • Prepare the desired number of pheromone traps as described under 'Assembly'.
  • Hang the traps about 10 cm/4 in. above the crop in a location where they can easily be inspected (e.g. along the center aisle).
  • Distribute the traps as evenly as possible over the area, in order to avoid interference.
