Non-Toxic Insect Traps

Posted in Pest Advice on November 25, 2019

Insect traps that attract and capture insect pests with non-synthetic, non-toxic lures are very useful as part of an insect pest control programme. 

Some non-toxic traps attract the insect pests with pheromones* that are specific to one or more insect pest species; these include Kiwicare NO Carpet Beetles, NO Clothes Moths, NO Pantry Moths and NO Fruit Flies Non-Chemical Traps. Others, such as the Kiwicare NO Cockroaches Traps use food attractants to bring the insects to their death.

The traps themselves can be sticky boards that the moths, beetles, cockroaches etc. stick to when they enter the trap.

Advantages of Non-Toxic Traps

  • Help control populations

*Pheromones are chemical substances (smells) released by an animal, especially a mammal or an insect, that affects the behaviour or physiology of others of its species. Many insect release pheromones that attract the opposite sex; sex attractants.
