A novel, pesticide-free method of managing Lygus bugs


Lybolty® is used as part of a novel ‘push-pull’ system for precision monitoring of Lygus bugs.

Lybolty® contains a safe, naturally occurring scent that is released in minute quantities and deters Lygus adults and nymphs from entering the crop, whilst pushing them towards traps and pheromones in order to increase trap catch.

Target Pests 

European tarnished plant bug, Lygus rugulipennis

Common green capsid, Lygocoris pabulinus

Common nettle bug, Liocoris tripustulatus
