These traps are similar to the Sticky Whitefly Trap but come in a Brilliant Blue Color. These blue sticky traps attract a broad spectrum of flying insects, including: aphids, whiteflies, thrips, leafhoppers and leafminers. Long lasting traps are weatherproof, and come with a wire twist to easily hang where needed. Extremely useful for monitoring your plants and identification of many common orchid pests.
Studies have shown that thrips are more attracted to the color blue than yellow. “Colored sticky traps were evaluated as potential detection and monitoring devices of the two thrip species over a two-month period in 2006. Results showed that blue sticky card traps consistently captured more adult thrips of both species compared to yellow sticky card traps.”
