Forest and Amenity Insects

T processionea larvae
Trees contribute immensely to our society, whether in the production of timber, capturing CO₂ and releasing oxygen, combating pollution in cities, or maintaining a visually green environment.  In low numbers the plants’ natural defences can often withstand attack.  In high numbers, whole trees and entire plantations can be killed.  Even one lost tree or palm in a prime city centre location can cost thousands to replace.  

The use of pheromone traps helps monitor the arrivals and potential spread of pest species and ensures timely and accurate intervention, before damage is done.

We have a range of speciality pheromone lures for amenity and forest insect pests.  If you do not see the species of interest to you, please contact us to see if we can help.
