- 1 trap body (WitaTrap® Delta Super Trap),
- 2 adhesive bases (separately packaged!),

- 1 suspension wire for mounting

Biology of the pest
Pest: Box tree moth
Scientific name: Cydalima perspectalis
Infests: various species of box tree

Main symptoms of infestation:  

  • Signs of damage to and light beige discolouration of leaves
  • Bright green faecal particles caught in webs and under trees
  • Webs become clearly visible if there is severe infestation

First appearance of caterpillars: mid-March/early April  --> use insecticide if necessary
First generation flight periods: early June --> set traps*
Second appearance of caterpillars: mid- to late July --> use insecticide if necessary
Second generation flight periods: August/September --> set traps*
Third appearance of caterpillars: September/October --> use insecticide if necessary

*PLEASE NOTE: Traps must be put in place before the moths take flight. The traps capture only the male moths.

Assemble the trap and hang it using the suspension wire from a branch or post.

In order to avoid attracting the pest insects directly to the box tree to be protected, hang the trap from another tree (that is not a box tree) in the vicinity. If this is not possible, the trap can also be hung from a suitably high post driven into the
Hang the trap at eye level to ground level, depending on height of the tree, between the main wind direction and the tree. Make sure the trap entrances are not blocked by twigs and leaves. Each trap should be checked at regular intervals of 2 - 3 days.
Each time a trap is checked, the insects sticking to the adhesive base should be removed using a suitable tool (e.g. twig or wooden scraper) to ensure that the full glue surface is revealed. If the base becomes very soiled, replace it or spray with a liquid glue, such as Soveurode special glue. 
Replace the attractant capsule and the adhesive base if necessary roughly every 4 - 6 weeks.
