Large Yellow Sticky Trap
Designed for use in greenhouses, these water-resistant traps attract small flying insects (whiteflies, aphids, sciarids, phorids etc) by means of the specific yellow colour. The insects are caught and retained on the surfaces by a coating of powerful dry-touch, no-mess insect glue. The Large Yellow Sticky Trap is the mid size in the range, at 200 x 245mm.
Research has shown that a number of important pest insects are attracted to a range of specific colour wavelengths. These colours present stimuli to the insect which may elicit a number of responses ranging from host plant recognition to ovipositional attractant, sexual stimuli, etc. For a wide range of whitefly, aphids, sciarids, etc, a specific tone of yellow has been found to be a powerful attractant, and the AgriSense Yellow Sticky Trap has been designed to take advantage of this behaviour. The plastic trap is coated on both sides with a high-tech, non-drying and non-drip adhesive. Simply remove the cover paper to activate the trap. The traps should be hung just above the crop, immediately after crop emergence and before insect pest populations start to build up. To facilitate hanging, the trap has two holes and green ties are supplied.
