A Technical Report from The Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories

A pheromone is a sex hormone that attracts male insects. The pheromones released by an insect can usually only be detected by individuals of the same species i.e. pheromone traps are insect specific and will not attract other insect species. These pheromone are typically placed in glue or liquid container traps and used to manage and/or monitoring insect populations (caterpillar, boring beetle, leaf miners etc).  Pheromone traps are designed to attract insects at very low population densities to allow control measures to be in place prior to insect populations building up.
