Traps and Bagging
Sticky traps can be used against the following pests , honeybees, cicadas, and
occasional bumblebees,They collect a wide range of insects, but are
particularly effective with small types of wasps and flies, as well as catching
good numbers of true bugs, moths, and smaller beetles.

Mechanical Methods: Yellow sticky boards (Figure 1.) have
been used with some success in the control of adult whiteflies.
This method may be most useful in a home greenhouse.
Whiteflies have a natural attraction to the color yellow, and if
yellow boards are painted with a sticky material, whiteflies
will fly to them and adhere. The yellow color used in USDA
experiments with success was RustOleum 659* yellow;
however, other deep orange-yellow paints would also be
effective. Of the sticky substances tried, Tack trap, a
commercial insect trapping compound worked the best. The USDA research also used heavy motor oil (SAE 90) successfully on the boards to trap whiteflies and
found the oil easier to wash off the boards than the sticky trapping materials.
A combination of the use of sticky yellow boards and the parasite E. formosa in some cases provided
almost complete control of the whitefly in commercial greenhouses.

Putting a yellow visual trap into your trap containers
can increase the response of stink bugs, as well as
their natural enemies.
Apple maggot traps: left, yellow sticky panel: right, red sphere (J. Brunner)
Adults can be monitored with sticky traps. Use either a red sphere or a bright yellow panel with protein and ammonia extracts as a lure. Unlike pheromone traps, which attract moths from several yards, an apple maggot trap is effective only over short distances, generally the tree in which it is located. Because traps, particularly the yellow panel type, attract many kinds of insects, they need to be inspected and cleaned regularly.
The scouting protocol deploys 12 Pherocon AM yellow sticky traps evenly spaced throughout the soybean field to be rotated to corn. Trapping begins the last week of July and lasts for four weeks, spanning the month of August when adult rootworm beetles are laying eggs. Every 7 to 10 days, total western corn rootworm beetle adults are counted from each trap and traps replaced. At the end of the 4-week sampling period, the average number of adults caught per
trap per day is calculated. A count of 5 beetles/trap/day (B/T/D) over the sampling period is
likely to result in economic root injury for corn planted in the field the next season. We quantify
this damage at a node-injury score of 0.5 or greater on the Iowa State University 0 to 3
node-injury scale (equivalent of one-half of a node of roots pruned, or more).

European apple sawfly are monitored using three-dimensional visual traps
consisting of non-UV white sticky boards that mimic blossom colour (Figure
5). Three traps are placed in trees between tight cluster and pink and
remain in the orchard until two weeks after petal fall.
They are positioned ideally on the south side of the tree at eye level
and along edges of the orchard bordering wood lots or fence rows. The traps
are checked for adult sawflies twice a week.

The Luxan FlyMate Flystrip has a design which is unique to the UK market place. It has a three
different methods of attracting flies which when placed together make the trap highly attractive.
1. The glue contains the fly sex pheromone Z-9 tricosene.
2. Specific fluorescent yellow colour (the result of field and lab trials to find the exact colour)
3. Images of groups of flies. (Trials showed that images of flies did increase attraction, however
clusters of flies further increased catch rate).
