Garden Chafer Beetle Trap Including Attractant Lure

What Are Garden Chafer Beetles?

Chafer Grubs are the larvae of Chafer Beetles. They are a common lawn pest in the UK and can cause significant damage primarily by eating the grass roots. This damage is soon multiplied as animals and birds will then dig up the grass in their quest to locate the grubs. 

How Does This Trap Help Combat Chafer Beetles?

Our Garden Chafer Beetle trap will catch adult Garden Chafer Beetles by attracting them into the trap using a powerful attractant lure. Once the beetles have flown into the trap they hit the plastic vanes and drop down into the trap, which they cannot escape from.

Chafer mating and egg laying will be reduced as a result, and future generations of Chafer grubs will be prevented from developing. The trap also provides a valuable warning as to when Chafers are present, which is critical for gardeners and lawn keepers wishing to protect their lawns from future damage resulting from Chafer egg laying. The trap can also be used to monitor the population levels of Chafer Beetle infestation.

How Do I Set Up The Lure Inside The Trap?

The attractant lure supplied should be placed into the green cage provided with the black top facing upwards. This will release the attractant gradually over a number of weeks. See attached pictures for guidance. 

Full instructions on how to set up the trap are provided on delivery.

When Should I Use My Traps?

Chafer Beetle traps should be hung from your trees with the lure from May onwards

What Distance Will A Garden Chafer Beetle Trap & Lure Cover?

One trap and lure will cover up to 2000m2

When Will I Need To Replace My Trap?

The trap can be used for years and replacement lures can be purchased for additional coverage. The lures are designed to last an entire Chafer Beetle flying season (roughly 6 weeks).

Each trap comes with one attractant lure. Replacement lures can be purchased separately here.

Additional lures may be stored in a fridge or freezer.

Packs of replacement small parts for this trap can be found here.

Establish Complete Control Over Chafer Beetles By Also Applying Our Chafer Grub Killer Nematodes

If Chafer Grubs do develop, nematodes can be used in combination with our traps to attack each stage of the life cycle. Our most effective treatment, Chafer Grub Killer Nematodes, can be found here. By utilising the nematode treatment, any grubs that manage to develop after use of the trap can be killed and the life cycle of the Chafer entirely terminated. Apply your nematode treatment in the late summer.

*Please be aware that this trap does not attract the Welsh Chafer Beetle. Please feel free to email us a picture of your infestation so our expert can identify the pest if you are unsure which species has infested your lawn.*
