PT 4 Allure Allurer Insect Trapping System
PT 4 Allure attracts and traps stored product insects by means of controlled released pheromones. Pheromones are chemicals produced to let other members of the same species know when to mate, aggregate, or avoid danger. Allurer traps economize and simplify the inspection process. The traps are also excellent evaluation tools to determine the effectiveness of insecticide applications.
PT 4 Allure traps can be placed throughout food processing plants, food warehouses and in other food processing facilities where stored product insect infestations are suspected. Allurer traps can also be used in kitchens and pantries of homes to detect and trap stored product pests. Whole wheat or graham flour, corn-meal, shelled or ear corn, broken grain and grain products, dried fruits, seeds, crackers, biscuits, nuts, powdered milk, chocolate, candy, red peppers, dog food, tobacco and cocoa beans.
Moth Trap Assembly Instructions:
1. Grasp top and bottom of trap and pull apart. The fold perforated ends inward to trap in three dimensional shape.
2. Peel off the paper covering the adhesive on the back of the pheromone packet. Note: Avoid touching packet membrane surface with fingers. Place the pheromone packet inside the top of the trap.
How Traps Work:
Itís fairly simple. The pheromone (sex) lure attracts of the PT 4 Allure male moths. Female moths are then attracted by the males moths trapped in the trap.
To prolong storage life, refrigerate or freeze unused pheromone packet. Use tweezers or rubber gloves to handle packets to avoid contamination, especially if traps for more than one insect species are being prepared. Do not damage the packetís membrane by stapling, pinning or nailing the packet to the trap. Do not peel the membrane apart.
