The trap should monitor up to 5 average size trees within a range of 15 metres (50 feet) of the trap. It should be hung at around head height on the windward side of the tree (or group of trees).
After 5 weeks replace the sticky insert and lure, with the second set provided. Inspect the trap regularly – the plum fruit moth is small (about 6mm or a quarter inch long) dark coloured, and rests with its wings folded to form a triangular shape. If you are catching more than 50 moths per week infestation is high and a suitable spray should be applied a week later. Continue monitoring and apply further sprays if needed. Remove the trap by the beginning of September and dispose of the lure and sticky insert.
The adhesive on the insert is very sticky. It may be removed from the hands by a proprietary hand cleanser/cream or from other surfaces using white spirit.
