Bucket Funnel Trap

Target pest

These traps are used for mass trapping and monitoring of, amongst others, larger Lepidoptera moths like African bollworm, Tomato semi-looper, Cabbage looper, Cutworms, Spotted stem borers and Maize stalk borers.


This is currently the most advanced Bucket Funnel Trap® on the current global market. By manufacturing our own Bucket Funnel Traps®, we have developed a far superior and more durable product compared to alternatives.

Improvements include:

  • Attachment points have been strengthened by 50% for longer lasting effect
  • The brims of both the bucket and lid have been reinforced for robust usage
  • The life expectancy has been increased by adding a UV protector agent

The funnel trap system consists of three heavy-duty parts, which slide effortlessly into each other. The trap is suspended by a trap hanger, using the top dome lid attachment. The PheroLure®, which attracts the insects, is placed inside the white plastic cage that is inserted into the top of the dome lid. All insects entering the trap are killed by the Dichlorvos block inside the bucket section.

Bucket funnel traps are sold together with the bucket, funnel, dome lid, pheromone cage, lid and trap hanger. The trap sections are interchangeable according to the customer’s needs.

The yellow Bucket Funnel Trap® has become a popular trap in various crops. One of its main functions is used for African bollworm. They have become a huge problem in vegetables and some fruit crops. Once eggs hatch the larvae grow quickly and damage crops during this part of the life cycle.
