TOPBUXUS Pheromone Refill for Boxwood Moth Trap

2 capsules (full season)
Refill for all Boxwood Moth Traps

The TOPBUXUS pheromone refill can be used in all funnel-shaped moth traps. For use in the TOPBUXUS Moth Trap and other moth traps: place 1 capsule in the basket in the lid of the moth trap. Store the 2nd capsule in the freezer or refrigerator. This allows you to change the bait in the trap halfway through the season.

CAUTION: Do not open capsule!

The pheromone is embedded in the special capsule, which is slightly porous, allowing controlled release of the pheromone over a period of about 8 weeks. When the cap is removed, the pheromone is released too quickly, shortening the effect.

Monitor Box Tree Moth activity

By monitoring the activity of the Buxus moth using the TOPBUXUS moth trapyou can easily predict when new Boxwood caterpillars will hatch in your Boxwood, so you can easily determine the right moment to apply a biological treatment against these caterpillars with TOPBUXUS Anti Rups® /XenTari®.

Attractant with a range of 200 square metres

TOPBUXUS Pheromones attract male Boxwood moths in an area of up to 200 square metres.


Instructions for use:
Assemble the moth trap according to the instructions on the box. Caution: you use only one capsule of lure at a time! Store the other capsule in the refrigerator or freezer. At the beginning of the season (3rd week of May) place 1 pheromone capsule in the basket in the lid of the moth trap. After this you hang the moth trap in your garden near your Boxwood. Halfway through the season (in the last week of July), the first pheromone has expired, you now replace the old capsule with the fresh capsule that you have stored in the refrigerator or freezer. In this way, you can monitor the Buxus moth for an entire season, allowing you to easily determine the right moment to carry out biological control with TOPBUXUS Anti Rups/XenTari.
