Insect Monitoring: Trapping & Monitoring for Smarter Pest Management
Before deploying any integrated pest management system, you must first gain a strong understanding of the population dynamics of the insects affecting your crops.
ISCA’s insect monitoring systems can help you assess insect activity and gain population estimates so you can deploy a solution that will be most effective at protecting your crops.
How Does Insect Monitoring Work?
Insect monitoring involves the use of traps and lures to get information on insect activity. Traps are strategically placed throughout the crop and include natural semiochemical attractants to draw insects into the traps. Effective monitoring can give you a wealth of information needed to select the most cost effective and productive solution.
