Chafer Beetle Trap & Refills
- Regular price
- from £17.99
Chafer Grub larvae can cause serious damage to lawns through tunnelling activity, killing roots and causing yellowing of the turf, which begins to feel spongy underfoot. Grubs tend to cause significant damage from Autumn to Spring by which time the larvae are becoming fully grown.
Predatory birds and mammals may cause secondary damage by digging up turf in their search for an easy meal, consisting of large, white grubs.
One way to detect whether Chafer Beetles are present is the use of Agralan Chafer Beetle Trap. This trap uses a powerful attractant to catch adult beetles, giving an early warning of Chafer Grub activity and the lawn damage that is likely to follow. It will also help reduce the numbers of egg laying adults in the surrounding area.
By monitoring the trap contents, more accurate applications of the nematodes or other lawn treatments can be applied against Chafer Grub larvae.
Trap contains: 1 x trap, 1 x pheromone lures and a trap record sheet to last one season.
Refill contains: 1 x pheromone lure (allows for re-use of the trap for a further season).
When to use
Trapping season: Place traps in a lawn area in May and continue trapping through June. It should be noted that the exact time of insect emergence will vary with location and season.
