Where and How To Use
Where it's used:
The time of year and the stage of the stink bug life cycle will dictate the optimal placement of the RESCUE!® Stink Bug Trap outdoors. In spring and early summer, the best place to hang the Stink Bug Trap is in a deciduous tree. After mating, adult female stink bugs seek out leafy trees on which to lay their eggs. Other foliage and shrubs can be used if a tree is not available. It is important that the clear tube be exposed to sunlight, while the green "fins" are touching foliage. The extra twist ties can be used to secure the trap fins at the bottom. This creates a pathway for the juvenile stink bugs, which cannot fly, to crawl onto the trap.
In mid- to late summer, stink bugs target fruits, vegetables and other ornamentals, so place the RESCUE!® Stink Bug Trap where you want to protect these plants. Placing the trap at the edge of a garden will draw out the stink bugs or intercept them before they enter. Again, it is important for the green fins to be touching foliage or the ground to allow the juvenile stink bugs to crawl into the trap.
In late summer or early fall after most plants are harvested or cut back, hang the RESCUE!® Stink Bug Trap within ten feet of your house to intercept adult stink bugs before they try to enter homes to overwinter. If you know where stink bugs usually enter your home or you see where they are congregating, place the trap near that part of the house. To protect all sides of a house from migrating stink bugs, multiple traps may be necessary.
When it's used:
The optimum outdoor stink bug catch period occurs from July through September, during the summer growing season.
