Contrap and Lasiotrap: pheromone solutions for cigarette pest control

Both pheromone traps operate by using an attractant placed in the center of a sticky glue patch, which is designed to lure and trap tobacco moths and beetles. The traps have small holes allowing the pheromones to release slowly over time, remaining active for up to six weeks.

While Contrap has a rather flat, oval shape and fits loaded containers where space is constricted, the triangle-shaped Lasiotrap is designed for warehouses and processing areas where available space is usually not a problem. That doesn’t mean that either would be ineffective in different (or opposite) environments — the two designs simply give users a choice in cases where there are space restrictions.

Worldwide insect pest

The tobacco beetle

Also known as the cigarette beetle, the reddish brown, almost hemispherical beetle has a size of 2 to 4 mm. Its body is covered with fine hairs and can be found all over the world. Besides leaf tobacco and tobacco products, the undesirable beetle also infects dried fruits, peanuts, cocoa, maize, wheat and spices.

The tobacco moth

The tobacco moth is 6 to 10 mm long and has a 12 to 20 mm wingspan. The upper forewing is banded pale grey, rather sinuate, and the lower wing is unicolor silver grey. For the tobacco industry, the larval feeding on tobacco (especially flue-cured and oriental) is the most significant damage. Furthermore, the tobacco moth attacks dried fruits, cereals, flour, spices, chocolate and nuts. The stored commodities are being spoilt by silk threads and fecal material.

Tobacco pest traps

For effective pest control, our tobacco pheromone traps provide a practical solution. To get started, store the pheromone capsules in a cool place below 20°C and open the sealed pouch just before deploying the trap. The capsules remain active for 4 to 6 weeks, providing reliable monitoring. When the capsules lose effectiveness, it's time to replace the trap with a new one to maintain optimal pest control.
