Curious to find out more? We’ve collected the key points of our research…


1. Colour Matrix

Opting for this specific shade of blue was influenced by the colours ability to maximise thrips catches by an impressive 53-87% in greenhouses.

2. Visual Pattern

Yes, really! Patterning directly effects the thrips attraction to the trap. Therefore, we’ve decided to use a pattern that optimises the catch rate of Western Flower Thrips and Thrips major by up to 25% according to UK field trials in Strawberries, 2015.

3. Adhesive

Using a specially formulated thermostable glue allows Trapline t+ to be more effective, as it’s able to perform in temperatures as low as 10°C and as high as 85°C.

4. Attraction pheromone

The incorporation of Thripline pheromone in the glue maximises the attraction of Western Flower Thrips. In fact, UK trials in Strawberries revealed the thrip catch increased by 30-100%. Plus, Microencapsulation of the pheromone ensures release for more than 5 weeks.
