Thripnok contains a combination of two natural and safe floral scents, that attract a range of flower inhabiting thrips species, such as western flower thrips, Frankliniella Occidentals, and onion thrips, Thrip tabac. These thrips species are world-wide pests that damage crops and spread virus diseases.
Adding Thripnok to sticky traps increased trap catch of thrips by 3x in glasshouse and polytunnel strawberry trials. Greater increases in trap catch have been observed in certain conditions and crops. The lures can be added to blue or yellow traps. Typical spacing is 10 meters apart, or 120 per hectare.

Why Use Biologicals?
One of the primary benefits of using beneficial insect release is that the process avoids chemical pest control methods such as pesticides. While pesticides are effective at controlling and eliminating pests, some plants and beneficial insects like bees can be affected negatively. Beneficial insects are a natural, organic, and environmentally sustainable way to control pests.
