VivaTrap! Squash Vine Borer Trap & Lure 20 Pack
Traps Squash Vine Borers!
The adult Squash Vine Borer is a stout dark gray moth with 'hairy' red hind legs, opaque front wings, and clear hind wings with dark veins. Unlike most moths, they fly about the plants during the daytime, appearing more like a paper wasp than a moth.
This insect overwinters as a full grown larva or a pupa one to two inches below the soil surface. If it has not already done so, the larva pupates in the spring. Adult moths begin to emerge about the time the plants begin to run, and moth flight continues through mid August. The small brown eggs, laid individually on leaf stalks and vines, hatch in seven to 10 days. The newly hatched larva immediately bores into the stem. A larva feeds for 14 to 30 days before exiting the stem to pupate in the soil. There are 1 to 2 generations per year.
The traps have a strong adhesive surface to retain captured Vine Borers, they cannot escape once stuck to the trap. 100% safe for pets, non toxic.
Instructions: For best results, hang traps a 5-10 feet away from grow area or garden plot to draw borers away.
Includes: 10x 2-packs (20x complete traps & lures total)

The pheromone in these is very effective. We wish they just sold the lures so we could make our own bigger traps for our farm. Considerably less expensive than buying the 2 packs and they are exactly the same.
These are about half price when you buy 10 of them here! The attractors they give you are really effective for the borer moths. We have tried another brand that is sometimes sold in stores and we did not think they were as good as Vivatrap. Company is also in the USA (denver Colorado) if that is important to you.
