How to use Wetstick traps

 

For high growing crops such as Aubergine, Cucumber, Pepper and Tomato, place just above the head of the crop.  The traps should be raised as the crop grows.  Traps can also be placed near vents or doors to monitor and catch the flow of new pests into the crop.  For low growing crops such as pot plants or bedding, place the traps above the plants or support with canes in the crop.  See the œcos colour guideline for which colour traps should be used for different pests.
