Sticky Cards for Monitoring

 

The functions of monitoring and trapping require the use of different spacing. For trapping, sticky cards are hung every seven feet or at the ends of rows on stakes or wires just above the plant level. Fungus gnats are trapped at one foot above soil or floor level.

 

Many guidelines for IPM suggest at least weekly monitoring, but monitoring programs should be established by qualified technicians or advisors. Through regular monitoring you will have more contact with the crop which makes it possible to correct pest and non-pest problems more quickly.

 

Helpful Hints: Maintain a plant-free zone of several feet around the greenhouse and use yellow sticky banner traps on the sides facing prevailing winds. This can be especially important if nearby crops are being harvested, which forces insect pests to leave the area. Though normally inconsequential, yellow traps have been known to occassionally trap beneficial insects. blue is better for monitoring thrips. Make notes of counts each week and keep records so trends can be observed.

 

Greenhouse monitoring techniques for five common insect pests are listed below:

Aphid (late winged) Hang just above plant canopy. 1 yellow card per 500-1,000 sq ft
Fungus Gnats Hang 1 foot above soil. 1 card per 5,000 sq ft
Leafminers Hang just above plant canopy. 1 yellow card per 500-1,000 sq ft
Thrips Hang just above plant canopy. 1 Blue card per 500-1,000 sq ft
Whitefly Hang just above plant canopy before planting. 1 yellow card per 500-1,000 sq ft
