California Red Scale Sticky Trap

California Red Scale Sticky Trap

Monitor and trap Aonidiella aurantii pests simply and effectively with California red scale sticky boards

California red scale pests feed on the fruit, leaves and branches of target hosts. The affected fruit is typically downgraded and very severe infestations can result in fruit drop and even tree death. Russell IPM have developed California red scale sticky boards to enable efficient monitoring and trapping of the pest to minimise damage and assist growers in gaining control. Monitoring for pests should be at the forefront of all pest management programmes, as early diagnosis will minimise crop destruction and increase the likelihood.
