Koppert launches new range of insect traps

This new range of Horiver traps can target specific insects for better monitoring results says Koppert sales and product manager, Rick van der Pas. 


Depending on colour, the Horiver Wet sticky trap is designed specifically for monitoring of adult aphids, whitefly, thrips, Tuta absoluta, fruit flies and sciarids. Its ultra-sticky glue provides large sticky surfaces and capturing capacity. It has a proven above-average score for catching whitefly. 


As the glue on the Horiver Dry sticky trap leaves no staining, users might experience this card as more user-friendly. Depending on colour, it is effective for a number of pests including thrips and sciarids.  The yellow card is extremely attractive to the harmful Nesidiocoris bug.  


Round in shape, Horiver Disc has been designed to fit around the stem of a plant – ideal to trap pests active both above and below the ground. It has been specifically adapted to trap root aphids and fungus gnats and has two attachment points for drip irrigation. This product is suitable for cannabis cultivation.  


With its large sticky surface area, Horiver Delta has glue on both sides of the card and can be folded into a large trap. Apply a pheromone dispenser to the inside of this trap and pests can be caught on both surfaces of this trap designed for flying insects.
