The products on this page are helpful to the pest management scout. They help making scouting doable and successful. On these pages are the following product groups:
Yellow and Blue Sticky Traps
Use yellow sticky traps to trap/monitor most pests. (Includes , , , , , , and many others). But be aware they may inadvertently capture parasitic wasps, midges, and beetles. Use with care. Reduce hang-duration if needed, just be consistent.
Trap Support Stakes
The placement of sticky traps should be either on the surface of the soil (for gnats), or 2-3 inches above the plant canopy. In some crops — those 2 to 8 inches or so — but not all, this allows the use of convenient metal trap stakes. Otherwise you can do what many growers have done for years: Use a bamboo stake and a wooden clothespin.
This is another feed store- or tack-store-type item. It’s a fine sticky-coated wire on a reel that is strung above head height in a barn or other similar area. The flies will land on it and decide to stay… forever. We’ve heard good things about this product.
