This "High Impact" Japanese Beetle Trap by Trece has earned the distinct title of being the most effective trap on the market today for trapping the Japanese Beetle (Popillia japonica). Constructed of high quality materials, this trap will provide years of performance.
PLACEMENT: To be most effective, the trap should be located about 10 feet downwind of foliage to intercept beetles heading toward it. Do not place the trap near or in the foliage as it will attract more beetles into the foliage. (Experience has shown that a height of about 3 1/2 to 4 feet intercepts large numbers of beetles). Traps work better in bright, open areas rather than shade. For large area, place 1 trap every 200 feet around entire perimeter.
Suggested rate for traps: 1 trap for less than 1/8 of an acre 2 traps for 1/8 to 1/4 of an acre 3 traps for 1/4 to 1/2 of an acre 4 traps for 1/2 of an acre
SPECIAL NOTES: MAINTENANCE: Inspect trap periodically. One HIGH IMPACT dual pheromone /floral lure (sold separately) should be effective for a complete season in most instances. Empty the cage when it is about half full of beetles
