  • Effectively monitors the presence of male citrus leafminer (Phyllocnistis citrella) in a crop
  • Provides accurate pest pressure data to determine the most cost-effective and productive control solution
  • Saves input costs by reducing the risk of overspraying
  • Helps reduce human and environmental exposure to pesticides
  • Reduces the possibility of pesticide resistance by limiting their excessive use

Citrus leafminer lure consists of a rubber plug impregnated with a specific female sex pheromone that attracts male citrus leafminer moths. When combined with a trap the pheromone will attract and catch male citrus leafminer moths enabling accurate crop monitoring.

Place the lure on top of the adhesive panel inside the trap. Only one citrus leafminer lure is needed per trap. Then attach the trap securely within the crop, at mid canopy height or where the pest usually resides.

Check the trap regularly for citrus leafminer moths. Replace the sticky surface of the trap every 2 weeks or when dirty or saturated with insects. Replace the citrus leafminer lure with a new lure at least every 8-12 weeks. When handling the lure, wear disposable gloves and avoid contaminating the outside of the trap with the pheromone. Discard old lures and all material that was in contact with the lures from the field. This includes the citrus leafminer lure packaging and disposable gloves.

Application Rate

Insert 1 citrus leafminer lure per trap. Use at least 2 traps/ha and at least 2 traps per location. The number of traps/ha can be reduced when monitoring large cropping blocks.

For best results, consult a qualified pest control advisor or your distributor for specific instructions regarding the application rate and timing for citrus leafminer lure application, as these will vary depending on pest population, crop, and field conditions.

Suitable for use in any crop vulnerable to citrus leafminer. Once pests are detected growers can then apply appropriate control measures for the larvae including Eco-oil and Eco-neem.

  • Citrus Leafminer Lure - 10 pack

    Store unused citrus leafminer lures sealed in the original container. Store in a cool, dry place, away from heat and out of direct sunlight. For optimal shelf life, keep refrigerated or in the freezer.
