This assortment of rectangular sticky traps offers a variety of sizes and colors to address almost any common garden pest problem or area. This selection contains one each of the Large Yellow (5½"x 8"), medium-sized (3½ x 8") Blue/Yellow, smallish Mini Yellow (3¼" x 5") and small (3" x 5") Green Traps. From these sizes, you should be able to find the one that best suits your needs.
These traps can be used alone or with an added attractant (such as an essential oil) or lure. They are especially effective when used with a pheromone lure to target specific pests. Each unique color has been shown to attract specific insects, with some insects being very particular color-wise and others liking all the colors. For instance, thrips are drawn to the color blue and pests on beans really go for the green traps. Aphids, on the other hand, are fickle and can be caught by all the colors. This selection of colors gives you an opportunity to see what your particular pests like best.
These durable traps are all UV and weather-resistant to maintain top-notch performance, no matter where you place them. In addition, each one is coated with Messyless Adhesive™, which reacts with light in a very specific way to increase your capture rate and keeps insects firmly caught. Use these gridded traps to identify and monitor your insect population and keep using them to track how well your pest management program is going.

Warning & Toxicities: A small percentage of beneficial insects present in your yard, garden or crops will find their way to this trap and become ensnared. This could potentially include lady bugs, honey bees, lacewings and parasitic wasps. Although this is unfortunate, sticky traps are still a preferred method of pest control as toxic insecticides would have a far more over-reaching and deadly impact on all insects, not to mention the damage to the environment and the creatures in it (including birds, children and pets). To minimize the risk to honey bees, avoid hanging traps too close to heavy honey concentrations when fruit trees are blooming.
