Thripnok contains a combination of two natural and safe floral scents, that attract a range of flower inhabiting thrips species, such as western flower thrips, Frankliniella Occidentals, and onion thrips, Thrip tabac. These thrips species are world-wide pests that damage crops and spread virus diseases.
Adding Thripnok to sticky traps increased trap catch of thrips by 3x in glasshouse and polytunnel strawberry trials. Greater increases in trap catch have been observed in certain conditions and crops. the lures can be added to blue or yellow traps. Typical spacing is 10 meters apart, or 120 per hectare.
