Guava and codling moths quickly become the bane of most fruit growers’ existence.
This trap catches moths. Not specific. The moths are present when fruit are forming and hatching when the fruit is ripe also.
Mid blossom to after harvest in March—best practice for Codlin & Guava Moth.
Now, we have another solution to rid us of those horrible caterpillars lurking inside: your feijoas, citrus, loquats, apples, peaches, plums, pears, and macadamia nuts.
An environmentally friendly, cost-effective insect pest control method, solar traps present an irresistible, self-destructive attraction to guava moths, including those tricky females and other small moths.
The purple haze of the UV light in this fatal lure will stop these unwelcome pests from ruining your soft fruit and nut crops year-round. Solar moth traps are effective in both commercial orchards and home gardens, covering an area of 1000m2.
HOW IT WORKS
The key to the success of our solar-powered moth traps is the high-efficiency light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and solar cells for recharging the storage batteries. Simple to assemble, the moth traps have a long-lasting cover for rechargeable batteries, solar cells, and electronic controls.
The story of the lamp and moth is one of fatal attraction. The potentially fatal lure of the moth to the light has long been a scientific mystery, but experts theorise that the LED lights in our solar moth traps confuse the animals’ navigational systems.
Moths are attracted to light, particularly UV purple light, a phenomenon known as positive phototaxis. Being primarily nocturnal creatures, moths evolved to travel by the moon's glimmer, a method called transverse orientation.
Assemble by poking metal holders into the holes by the screws. Slot the tray inside the holders. Hang from a tree branch. Add cooking oil to the tray. Empty when full. (I feed to chickens :)
