  • Our Plantura Box Tree Moth Trap is a pheromone trap for the early detection of box tree moth infestations. These pesky moths have been wreaking havoc and devouring our beloved box plants for many years now. Unfortunately, box tree moths like to hide inside the plants, so they are tricky to find. We have developed our Box Tree Moth Trap to save you having to check your box tree for moths every single day: it monitors box tree moth activity early and reliably. If you find moths in the trap, a caterpillar infestation is just around the corner.

    You can either hang the trap or place it (on a stick) near your box tree plants. Our Plantura Box Tree Moth Trap can cover an area of up to 180m2. If you want to stop the moths in their tracks immediately, fill the body of the trap with approximately 5cm of soapy water.

    No, our trap for box tree moths is 100% insecticide-free and therefore not harmful to humans, pets or other beneficial insects. The pheromones in the trap only attract male box tree moths.

    How does Plantura Box Tree Moth Trap work?
    Our trap attracts male box tree moths with the help of pheromones. If you find moths in the trap or notice them buzzing around it, a caterpillar infestation is to be expected in the next 1 to 2 weeks. So pheromone traps such as our Plantura Box Tree Moth Trap help you detect infestations early - they are only an indirect pest control method. For best results, replace the pheromone dispensers in the trap every 4 to 6 weeks.
    How can I get rid of box tree moths effectively?
    As already mentioned, our pheromone trap helps detect infestations at an early stage and only attracts male box tree moths. The females, however, can continue to lay their eggs. Therefore, new caterpillars will keep hatching. To actively combat the caterpillars, we recommend applying our Plantura XenTari® - an effective remedy against the voracious box tree caterpillars. It is a biological insecticide that is applied to affected box trees and stops the caterpillars from feeding immediately after application.
    Robust & reusable: easy to assemble and refill
    To assemble the trap, screw the funnel onto the main body of the trap and attach the roof to the funnel. Take one of the dispensers out of the protective foil and place it in the pheromone container. Put the safety cap onto the container and attach the container to the roof of the trap. Replace the dispenser every 4 to 6 weeks. When you order our Box Tree Moth Trap, you will receive 6 dispensers. You can also order our Box Tree Moth Trap Refill, so you can keep using the trap over and over again.

    Frequently asked questions

    If you find box tree moths in your trap, we recommend ordering our Plantura XenTari®. You should also check your box tree for the small caterpillars at least every other day. As soon as you spot the first caterpillars on the plant, you can apply our remedy against box tree moths. Rule of thumb: The caterpillars will appear about 1 to 2 weeks after you have found moths in your trap.

    The pheromones in the Box Tree Moth Trap will not attract every box tree moth, nor will all of the moths land directly in the trap. Our pheromone trap is not made for actively combatting the moths, instead it shows you when to expect caterpillars on your box tree. This way, you can intervene early before the voracious box tree caterpillars can cause serious damage to your plants.

    Generally, the box tree moth can be found in gardens from March onwards. However, this can vary from year to year depending on several factors, such as the harshness of the previous winter. So to detect infestations effectively, set up our Box Tree Moth Trap from March until September/October. Because box tree moths go through several generations a year, replace the pheromone dispenser in the trap every 4 to 6 weeks for optimal results.

    Our pheromone trap comes with 6 dispensers. They should be replaced every 4 to 6 weeks to get the best effect. You can also order refills for our Box Tree Moth Trap from our shop.

    No, simply take the protective foil off the dispenser and place it in the pheromone container. Avoid touching the dispenser as human scents can reduce the trap’s effectiveness.

    You can use the trap itself over and over again - it has an unlimited shelf life. The small pheromone dispensers that attract male box tree moths, on the other hand, keep for up to 2 years, if stored in a cool and dry place. Once a dispenser has been put in the trap, it should be replaced after 4 to 6 weeks for full effectiveness.

      Amazing

      I have a one woman battle going on and have caught over 200 moths including the rare brown box tree moth. I started this war with a huge infestation but fingers crossed this is working my advice is March to November and include use of nematodes
