  • Effectively monitors the presence of fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) 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

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

Place the lure on top of the adhesive panel inside the trap. Only one FAW lure is needed per trap. Then attach the trap securely within the crop, about 2m above the ground or where the pest usually resides.

Check the trap regularly for fall armyworm. As soon as moths are detected start applying SPODOVIR PLUS virus. FAW populations can be very high and traps may be overwhelmed with moths very quickly so it is important to frequently monitor sticky traps (high density areas every few days). Replace the FAW 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 FAW lure packaging and disposable gloves.

Application Rate

Insert 1 FAW 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, contiguous areas.

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

Suitable for use in any crop vulnerable to fall armyworm.

  • Fall Armyworm (FAW) Lure - 10 pack
  • Wear disposable gloves while handling and applying FAW lures.

    Store unused FAW 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.
