When to use Horiver?
Use Horiver to monitor and trap the adult aphids, leaf-miners, whiteflies, thrips and sciarids.
How does Horiver work?
The insects are drawn to the colour. They fly against the card and then they get stuck in glue.
Sticky traps are essential in the detection and partial elimination of many species of flying pests. Sticky traps make it possible to detect pests at an early stage and then use biological measures to combat them. This prevents unnecessary applications of chemicals.
Moreover, counting the captured insects on the sticky traps on a regular basis makes clear when pests are present, how fast their population is developing, and when their population is likely to reach its peak. In this way gardeners can be much better prepared for potential threats.
The cards have a grid which makes counting easier.
How to use Horiver
Hang the cards on a secure stick or stand and attach it with a suitable wire or string. The cards are sticky so wear gloves when handling them.
The method of attaching the cards should be done is such a manner that the card is not obstructed but also so that it does not tear through the material as it is blown by the wind.
Instructions for usage:
- With regards to tall crops such as cucumber, tomato, pepper and roses, position the traps just above the top of the plant and adjust while the plants grow.
- When it comes to crops with a low canopy, support the traps by canes or wire holders and install them maximum 30 cm above the crop.
- The traps must be placed in areas where the risk of pest infestation is high.
With regards to monitoring purposes, the advised rate is five traps per 1,000 m². If the traps must contribute to the biological control of pests in so-called hot spots (i.e. mass trapping), use at least one trap per 20 m² or at most one trap per 2 m².https://youtu.be/-0ob1FlKbeA
