Starter kit contains 3 pheromone lures and 3 paper delta traps
Product Description: Pheromone lure for citrus leafminer, Phyllocnistis citrella. Nature identical, species specific, high isomeric purity pheromone loaded in controlled release rubber septa dispenser lure. ISCAlure-Citrella has been independently tested to have the highest isomeric purity among commercially available citrus leafminer lures. Isomeric purity has been determined to be an important factor in efficacy and longevity of citrus leafminer lures.
ISCAlure-Citrella is formulated with the nature identical pheromone blend of the citrus leafminer pheromone. Independent analysis of ISCAlure-Citrella and other competitor CLM lures have shown that the nature identical CLM pheromone blend is not used in competitor lures, or it is not used with the optimal isomeric purity or pheromone blend, which is one of the causes for the lower efficacy and longevity of competitor CLM lures.

These are the same lures selected and deployed by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and extension entomologists for monitoring and trapping programs for Phyllocnistis citrella.
