Box Tree moth [ Cydalima perspectalis ] is a new invasive species of moth that is appearing in the south east of England. The moth lays eggs that quickly develop into caterpillars that feed and destroy box plants and hedges. Ths new invasive pest is expected to spread to many areas of the UK over the next few years. The pest has already caused considerable damage to box plants in France.

The first step in a strategy to contain and control this new pest is to monitor and catch adult moths. This can be acheived with a Box tree moth pheromone trap. Each trap is supplied with two pheromone lures. These lures attract male Box tree moths. This informs us that Box tree moths are present and will help to reduce populations by stopping the caught males mating, this in turn reduces egg laying. Each pheromone lure will last about six weeks. It should then be replaced with a new lure to make sure the trap continues to be active.

If Box tree caterpillars start to appear on your box plants, spray them with new Ecofective Bug Killer. This is a natural insecticide made from potassium salts and natural pyrethrins. The fatty acid has a physical mode of action, which weakens the caterpillars and allows the natural pyrethrin to be more effective in killing the caterpillars. Ecofective is a natural insecticide , so should be kepy outof reach of children and pets but it has a short persistence once sprayed, as it is UV sensitive. This means it breaks down quickly, leaving no harmful residues for beneficial insects. It works by contcat, so the caterpillars should be thoroughly sprayed.

The Box Tree moth and caterpillar kit is supplied as ;

  • 1 x Box Tree moth pheromone trap and 2 pheromone lures
  • 1 x Ecofective 1 litre RTU spray bottle

Dragonfli is also currently researching biological control agents for control of Box tree mothsusing beneficial insects.

Spider Mite Control 

Red Spider Mite is one of those pests that simply refuses to be controlled at times. Luckily we have a few great options to hammer down pest populations and stay on top of the problem. 
 
Spider Mite Killer – Phytoseiulus persimilis predators are fantastic for use when red spider mite is present in large numbers. This hungry predator will munch through up to 20 red spider mites per day. Available in a number of sizes to suit your treatment area.
 
 
Spider Mite Killer Sachets- Amblyseius andersoni predators are excellent when used as a preventative or long term control method for spider mites. Utilising the ability to feed on pollen even when prey is sparse these predators can survive for longer allowing introduction before infestations can build up. These predators feed on eggs, young and adult spider mites making them ideal to break pest life cycles long term.
