Wax Paper Strips
|Full Description: This is for 4 rolls/srtips of wax paper strips. These catch white flys, nats,small moths, many varieties of flies and flying scale egg layers. Primarily the scale egg layers are an Epis growers worse nightmare as there can be hard to control. More than one tool is needed to rid these tiny pesky pests that leave scared stems in there wake. Use this product along with a systemic insecticide for best results.Comes with a tack to attach red loop to wood, hang loop to wire basket or tape to metal or plastic. Pull loop to unroll, best if you leave in full sun before unrolling. Easy to use! |
This product contains no harmfull pesticides its eviromentaly safe and very low tech (just sticky wax paper) but its very effective. One strip hanging in a strategic spot can catch hundreds in 24 hours or less.
If you see tiny black nats swarming your Epis its most likely scale flying around looking for another host to lay eggs. Hang these nearby and catch them before they lay more eggs, follow up with systemic insecticide to kill the eggs and hatchlings inside plant tissue. These are less sticky if wet so try to keep dry but usually if you place then withhold watering a few days they do the job very fast. Hang/replace with new strips once there full.
Below shows a strip put out only 48 hours and cleared the imeadiate area in that time, show a house fly caught, a moth (gray colored one) and many tiny black dots-(scale). Each strip is effective for a 15' x 15' area placed in the center of the area with the culprets. Now scale bugs can come in many forms as theres crawlers too and over 100 varieties but on the west coast fliers are most prevalent. Some are light brown in color also.
