Impact Board Light Blue

Colour optimised sticky glue traps for control of various greenhouse pests

Russell IPM Impact board traps attract and trap a wide range of insect pests. Each trap type is a specific colour, designed and tested to maximise the attraction and catch of the most important pest species.

The traps can be used in high temperature, high humidity environments and the adhesive is UV-light stable, making them ideal for use within glasshouse and polytunnel crops as well as outside. They have a convenient peel-off paper cover, ensuring that the product is easy-to-use and easy to hang out. The grid printed on one side is a guide to help with counting the insects.

Benefits of the Impact board light 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.

Light Blue Impact Boards are attractive to some thrips species (for western flower thrips use the Blue Impact boards). 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.
