Aphid Card

Target pest

Aphids as well as Thrips, Leaf miners and Whitefly.

Description

Aphids feed by inserting their mouth-parts through the plant tissue, directly into the phloem and removing plant sap. Aphids can cause stunting of growth and plant/leaf deformities. They are responsible for the transmission of about 60% of all plant viruses on agricultural crops worldwide.

The key to preventing an aphid infestation is constant monitoring. Insects are drawn towards the highly attractive yellow Aphid Card™ and are immediately trapped on contact with our powerful Flytac® adhesive. Flytac® is an advanced, non-toxic adhesive manufactured by Insect Science®.

The Insect Science® Yellow Aphid Card™ is made from strong plastic and is reusable.

  • Apply 1 card per 1 – 5 ha in open field and 1 – 2 cards per tunnel house
  • Additional cards can be placed near doors or vents to monitor extra movement into greenhouses
  • Cards should be counted and changed weekly or when they are full
