  • Effectively monitors the presence of red cedar tip moth (Hypsipyla robusta) in a crop

  • Helps reduce human and environmental exposure to pesticides
  • Reduces the possibility of pesticide resistance by limiting their excessive use

Red cedar tip moth lure consists of a rubber plug impregnated with a specific pheromone that attracts male red cedar tip moths. When combined with a trap the pheromone will attract and catch red cedar tip moths enabling accurate crop monitoring.

Place the lure on top of the adhesive panel inside the trap. Only one red cedar tip moth 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 red cedar tip moths. Replace the sticky surface of the trap every 2 weeks or when dirty or saturated with insects. Replace the red cedar tip moth 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 both the red cedar tip moth lure packaging and disposable gloves.

Application Rate

Insert 1 red cedar tip moth 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 red cedar tip moth lure application, as these will vary depending on pest population, crop, and field conditions.

Suitable for use in any crop vulnerable to red cedar tip moth.
