Monitoring and Trapping Insects

Bug Lady posted this on Oct 12, 2016


Capturing pests as a means to identify, quantify or control adult stages of an infestation.


  • A variety of traps are used to aid the inspection process and symptom suppression.
  • The role of trapping can range widely from identifying insects present to measuring populations of insects, or acting as a control mechanism.


  • Monitors/traps often act as an early warning system and alert the homeowner to pest activity before pests are encountered.
  • Monitoring also helps progress in the control process and identify remaining hotspots of an infestation.
  • In addition to providing valuable information about the infestation, monitors/traps serve as significant population reduction mechanisms.
  • Monitors/traps are a part of all Integrated Pest Management programs.
