Western flower thrips Improved Pheromone Formulation


Russell IPM will be promoting its award-winning sticky roller traps infused with the Western Flower Thrips aggregation pheromone. Microencapsulation has produced a longer release of the pheromone. The Optiroll Blue Super Plus rolls reduced thrips numbers by 50-83% in large-scale field trials. Traps remain effective throughout the entire cropping season. Growers can order them now from Russell IPM’s UK office.
