Insect Tech Range

InsectTech is the concept that insect control should always be measured and considered. InsectTech is the integration of insect chemical ecology (semiochemicals) which includes monitoring lures, trapping, ISCA SPLAT mating disruption and lure and kill products with biological control solutions like HELICOVEX and GRANDEX. The aim is to protect crops from pest damage while having minimal impact on the complex insect ecology that sustains our production ecosystem.

Native Budworm Lure

Native budworm lure (Heliothis punctigera)
Helicoverpa punctigera is a polyphagous pest attacking multiple plants species and all parts of plants. Place lures in delta traps on the edge of crops or if possible a few rows in on the windward side of the field at canopy height. Monitor every few days for moth activity.

Corn Earworm Lure

Corn earworm, Cotton bollworm, Tobacco budworm lure (Heliothis armigera)
Helicoverpa armigera is a polyphagous pest attacking multiple plants species and all parts of plants. Place lures in delta traps on the edge of crops or if possible a few rows in on the windward side of the field at canopy height. Monitor every few days for moth activity.

Plastic Delta Traps

Sturdy, corrugated plastic traps for outdoor use. Comes in various colours with 2 sticky liners. Lures are purchased separately. Each packs of 10 plastic delta traps comes with 20 sticky liners. Normally the sticky liners will need to be replaced weekly when the counts is done.

Codling moth lure

Codling moth are a major pest of Pome fruit including Apples, Pears & Nashi fruit. Lures need to be placed out in the field in delta traps at 1 trap every 2 hectares and place lure and trap slightly higher than mid-canopy height. Replace every 6-8 weeks to keep attraction rates high. Monitor from early spring up to harvest. Deploy mating disruption techniques with trap deployment and GRANDEX at egg laying stage of first flight.

Oriental fruit moth lure

Oriental fruit moth is a common pest of Stonefruit. OFM will attack Pome fruit and Nashi if Stonefruit is not present or after harvest of Stonefruit. Lures need to be placed out in the field in delta traps at 1 trap every 2 hectares and place lure and trap slightly higher than mid-canopy height. Replace every 6-8 weeks to keep attraction rates high. Do not contaminate OFM pheromone with CM pheromone. Store separately and change gloves if going from dispensing OFM to CM lures. Monitor from early spring up to harvest. Deploy mating disruption techniques with trap deployment and GRANDEX at egg laying stage of first flight.

Light brown apple moth lure

Light brown apple moth is a common pest of Apples, Pears, Citrus and Grapes vines but is polyphagous in nature (attacks many species of plants). Lures should be placed in the orchard at 1/ha, hang trap and lure at mid canopy height and replace lure every 6-8 weeks. Deploy mating disruption techniques with trap deployment.

Banana spotting bug Lure & Trap

Banana spotting bug (Amblypelta lutescens) is a major pest of tropical and subtropical crops in Qld (North of Nambour to Atherton). Not to be confused with its close cousin A. nitida which is more common as far south as Nambucca.

Until now it has been extremely difficult to monitor for this pest due to its very cryptic and highly mobile behaviour. The BSB Trap now offers growers the opportunity to trap this pest and be able to make decisions about economic damage thresholds and informed spraying decisions.

Comes a pack of ten traps and lures which is enough to trap over 1 ha for 6 weeks.
