How to Use

The trap should be used when adult moths are expected to be active, from April until October. It should be sited where box trees and bushes are growing.

  • To prevent trapped moths from escaping, pour 5 cm of water and a drop of detergent into the trap's clear base.
  • Open the sachet containing the pheromone lure and place it in the cage at the top of the trap. The pheromone lure should be replaced every six weeks.
  • Hang the trap 1.5 – 2.0 meters above the ground.
  • Check the trap weekly. Empty and replace the water.
  • At the end of the season, dispose of used lures and store the trap away from light and frost for future use.
  • New pheromone lures can be purchased to use with existing traps.

Where there are serious or persistent infestations, use the trap alongside other control measures for best results.

Brand Focus


Andermatt was started by two Swiss PhD students, Dr Martin and Isobel Andermatt. They believed so strongly in replacing chemical pest control with biologicals that they created the world’s first plant-protecting baculovirus in 1988. To this day, Andermatt believes that getting the most from your garden needn't come at a cost to our environment. Always innovating, the Andermatt team are constantly formulating new biological controls and natural alternatives to help you eliminate nasty bugs safely, whilst protecting the good ones.
