Sticky Traps

When to use Horiver?

Use Horiver to monitor and trap adult aphids, fungus gnats, thrips, and other flying pests.

 

 

How does Horiver work?

Sticky traps are essential in the detection and partial elimination of many species of flying pests in greenhouses, outdoor gardens, and indoor growing areas. Sticky traps make it possible to detect pests at an early stage and then implement biological measures to combat them. This prevents unnecessary applications of chemicals.

Moreover, counting the captured insects on the sticky traps on a regular basis makes clear when pests are present in the greenhouse, how fast their population is developing, and when their population is likely to reach its peak. In this way growers are much better prepared for potential threats.

 

 

How to Apply Horiver

  • Position the traps just above the top of the plant and adjust as the plants grow.
  • When the canopy is still low, support the traps by canes or wire holders and install them at a maximum 12" above the crop.
  • The traps must be placed in areas where the risk of pest infestation is high, e.g at doors, gable ends and lateral ventilation openings
  • Traps must be removed when significant numbers of flying pests are caught. This happens when traps hang among the plants (instead of above)

Dosage

With regards to monitoring purposes, the advised rate is five traps per 1,000 m². If  the traps must contribute  to the biological control of pests in so-called hot spots (i.e. mass trapping), use at least one trap per 20 m² or at most one trap per 2 m². Both small and larger traps can be used for this purpose.
