  • Effectively monitors the presence of corn earworm (Helicoverpa armigera) 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

Corn earworm lure consists of a rubber plug impregnated with a specific pheromone that attracts male corn earworm moths. When combined with a trap the pheromone will attract and catch corn earworm moths enabling accurate crop monitoring.

Place the lure on top of the adhesive panel inside the trap. Only one corn earworm lure is needed per trap. Traps should be placed on the edge of crops or, if possible, a few rows in on the windward side of the field. Position traps at canopy height or where the pest usually resides.

Check the trap regularly (every few days) for corn earworm. Replace the sticky surface of the trap every 2 weeks or when dirty or saturated with insects. Replace the corn earworm lure with a new lure at least every 4 – 6 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 corn earworm lure packaging and disposable gloves.

Application Rate

Insert 1 corn earworm 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 corn earworm lure application, as these will vary depending on pest population, crop, and field conditions.

Suitable for use in any crop vulnerable to corn earworm.

  • Corn Earworm Lure - 10 pack
  • Wear disposable gloves while handling and applying corn earworm lures.

    Store unused corn earworm 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.
