Banana spotting bug (Amblypelta lutescens) is a major pest of tropical and subtropical crops in Qld (North of Nambour to Atherton). Not to be confused with its close cousin A. nitida which is more common as far south as Nambucca.
Until now it has been extremely difficult to monitor for this pest due to its very cryptic and highly mobile behaviour. The BSB Trap now offers growers the opportunity to trap this pest and be able to make decisions about economic damage thresholds and informed spraying decisions.
Comes a pack of ten traps and lures which is enough to trap over 1 ha for 6 weeks.
