Robust, reusableand reliable

  • Effective fly and mosquito monitoring - specially designed inverted funnel trap used in combination with a pheromone to attract target insects
  • Multipurpose – for timely detection of a new infestation, monitoring existing population size
  • Intervene at ideal moment - with careful monitoring, detect infestations early
  • Reusable - robust trap made of durable plastic

How does the robust McPhail Trap® work?

  • Fill trap base with soapy water, add a liquid attractant if necessary
  • Place the lure in the dispenser
  • Attracted to the pheromone, flies/mosquitoes enter the inverted funnel
  • Once inside, they remain trapped - attracted by the pheromone and light
  • Flies tire, fall into the soapy solution and drown
