Frequently asked questions
If you find box tree moths in your trap, we recommend ordering 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, should be stored in a cool and dry place. You can find the expiration date on the packaging. Once a dispenser has been put in the trap, it should be replaced after 4 to 6 weeks for full effectiveness.

I have 6 small intected box plants (about 80cm tall) - 2 of which were completely bare. I have been away for 1 week and have found 40 dead male moths in the one trap - Excellent. My box are all coming back to life. BUT I have also hand killed over 200 caterpillars and pupae and sprayed the plants with the bacteria that kill them. So my message is hit them on all fronts. It is time consuming but satisfying. It is also good to see the plants coming back to life even though one looked dead.

Yes, it really does - as long as you remember to replace the pheromone capsule every 6 weeks.
