Scale Card (Plastic)

These highly durable plastic cards have the scientifically proven UC grid, which comprises of the distinctive 24-block design. This has simplified the counting method. When the insects are counted on the 24 specially marked squares and multiplied by 5, an accurate figure is attained. Flytac® is an advanced, non-toxic adhesive, manufactured by Insect Science®. It is applied to the Scale Card to ensure that all insects that come into contact with it are immediately captured. The Flytac® is replaced on a weekly basis after counting has taken place and cards have been cleaned using our Glue Remover. Another method is to wrap the card in Gladwrap first and then apply Flytac®. Insect Science® manufactures these Scale Cards from specific, highly attractive colours to insects. These cards are effective for all scale insects.

White Scale Cards are effective for all scale insects, including California Red Scale and Citrus Mealy Bug.

Yellow Scale Cards are effective for Thrip, Aphids, Leaf Miners and White Fly.

Blue Scale Cards are highly effective for Western Flower Thrip.

The card attached to a wire is suspended from a pole. These cards can be used in greenhouses, open fields, orchards, vineyards and home gardens for monitoring purposes.
