Pheromone caps – species-specific attractants for detecting / monitoring insect pests
Wide range available for different pests
A pheromone is a substance secreted by many organisms, including insects, to communicate. The composition of pheromones is species specific and can trigger a certain behavioural response in individuals. Depending on the type of the pheromone it repels or attracts individuals from that species. Pheromones that attract are often used to detect and monitor certain pests. When the lure is combined with a trap such as the delta trap, the number of moths can easily be monitored on the sticky inserts.
