While cucumber beetles are common pests to plants in the cucurbit family (Cucurbitaceae), these voracious eaters will happily feed on other plant varieties as well. These beetles deposit their eggs in the soil around a plant's roots or under a leaf's surface. In 5-9 days, the larvae will hatch and begin tunneling through and feeding on a plant's roots and stems. During the 2-3½ weeks a larvae is developing, it will continue to live in and off of the plant. After this period, it moves to the soil to pupate. In just 4-10 days, the adults will emerge from the soil and start the process again. Cucumber beetles not only severely defoliate plants and damage fruit, they also serve as vectors for certain viral plant diseases. This trap works by attracting adults with a pheromone lure; once they get too close, they become caught on the sticky trap and quickly perish. These traps only work on the adults; they do not kill the larvae. Close observation and alternative methods should be considered for more complete coverage.

Lures last for 3-4 weeks once placed depending on the temperature. They may last longer in cooler temperatures.
