Cydia pomonella lures

Cydia pomonella lure is a component of an insect trapping device, that uses pheromones to lure codling moths, that attack apple, pear and walnut crops among others, into a trap.

The lure, in the form of the rubber dispenser, containing Cydia pomonella pheromone, must be placed in a pheromone trap to be fully functional (traps can be bought separately or in kits with lures).

Using such pheromone lures is an economic, environmentally sound approach to either monitor or mass-trapp these pests.

The lures in the traps must be replaced every 4-6 weeks to keep attraction rates high. Shelf life - up to 1 year (optimum conditions).

Rubber dispenser.


4 - 6 weeks once opened. May vary depending on climate.

How to use

• Take out the pheromone lure from its foil pouch just before use and place it on the trap (following Trap Use instructions).
• Do not place lures unprotected in direct sun.
• Please keep in mind that the disposal of the wrapping should be done away from the monitoring area.


Place the trap at the height of about 1.5 - 2 meters.

Positioning Density

For monitoring purposes - 1 trap should be deployed every hectare but no less than 3 traps per field/farm. For mass-trapping - number of traps is subject to pest pressure and locally approved control strategy.


Pheromone lures should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from sunlight. For conservation of lures for longer periods of time it is recommended to refrigerate the product, in which case they will be effective for over 12 months.


Replace every 4 - 6 weeks or as recommended by the agricultural authorities. Please keep in mind that the disposal of the old pheromone dispensers should be done away from the monitoring area, to avoid interference with the monitoring process.


Handle carefully. Even though this substance is not harmful to humans and the environment it is advised to use gloves when handling the product and wash hands thoroughly before and after handling the lures.


The lures are individually wrapped in an airtight foil pouch (to protect it from sunlight and contamination). Each pheromone Lure/Dispenser contains 3 mg of ready to use blend.
