DUPONCHELIA ® lures are rubber strips impregnated with a synthetic replica of the Duponchelia female pheromone.
Duponchelia lures are packed in small aluminium foil packs each containing 10 strips. Yellow or blue sticky cards are packed in packs of 10 pieces each.
Traps and lures should be applied as early in the cropping cycle as possible. Apply one lure per insect trap. The lures and traps should be placed within the crop canopy where the moths are found.
Mode of Action
Lures are "attract and kill" tools used together with insect sticky traps (cards) that are available separately. Duponchelia adult males are lured onto the sticky attractant traps by the pheromones on the lures. The moths are trapped on the cards where they die. This disrupts the mating activity of adults – thus reducing the population and eventually causing the population to crash. The lures and cards can also be used to monitor the populations of the pests.
