Cucumber beetles are a pest common to crops in the cucurbit family. Though they prefer these types of crops, they also cause substantial damage to other crops. This trap is a non-toxic option for monitoring or eliminating these destructive pests. To use, place one trap for every 2,000 square feet for monitoring insect activity; use one trap every 400 square feet for pest control. Place a single lure on or near each trap. The lure continues to attract beetles for three to four weeks depending on temperature. Replace the sticky trap when it becomes covered with insects or dirt.
Experts at Oregon State University developed the cucumber beetle lure through years of research. Further testing by Virginia Tech showed a 10 to 1 ratio of effectiveness when compared to untreated cards. Researchers at the University of Missouri/Lincoln University used the lure to trap a total of 3,217 beetles during a six-week trial!
