Definition of sticky trap

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by talinum:

A card covered with a sticky substance to trap flying insects. These traps are hung immediately above the plant. They are colored yellow. This color attracts insects, particularily whiteflies.

These can be made at home using vaseline for the sticky substance.

Remember, don't wear the color yellow or blue when shopping for plants. These colors attract insects and you will take them home with you.
