Impact Board Blue

Colour optimised sticky glue traps for control of various greenhouse pests

The Impact range of coloured sticky boards can attract and trap a broad spectrum of soft bodied insects including thrips such as western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis. Regular monitoring of the sticky traps makes early detection of infestation possible. Monitoring for pests should be at the forefront of pest management programmes, as early pest diagnosis will increase the likelihood of minimising damage and gaining maximum control.

Benefits of the Impact board blue
  • Scientifically optimised colour matrix to maximise pest catch rate whilst reducing attraction to beneficial insects.
  • High tack adhesive layer.
  • Ideal for quick and simple monitoring.
  • Available with and without grid pattern for ease of counting.

Blue impact boards are highly attractive to the western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis, but also attract other thrips species and capsid bugs. These traps are an essential tool to detect new pest outbreaks and to help with decision making.

Monitor weekly from the start of cropping by placing one trap per 200m2 and recording the number of pests per trap. Hang the traps vertically, with the base about 10 cm above the top of the crop, and move them upwards as the crop grows. For mass trapping, use one trap per 20m2 with extra traps every 2m2 in hot spots. Replace after 6 to 8 weeks or sooner if covered in insects. For western flower thrips you can also combine Impact traps with pheromone lures or use Optiroll blue roller traps to increase trap catch.
