Trap Placement and Use:
For monitoring, evenly space traps in a grid system. Use one trap per 30,000 cubic feet. Hang in appropriate locations with wire or string. Record trap counts on the Whitmire Micro- Gen ALLURE Monitoring Record form.
To find infestations within the facility, move traps from uninfected areas to the area where moths have been captured, increasing trap density to as much as one trap per 9,000 cubic feet. Close inspection in the area of maximum trap catch should reveal the infestation source.
Mass trapping can be accomplished with trap densities of one or more traps per 3,000 cubic feet, depending on the size of the moth population.
Inspect traps weekly and remove insects and debris. Replace trap if insects, dust, or debris reduce stickiness.
The pheromone lure lasts 16 weeks and can be removed and used on new traps.
