Attracts & Traps Squash Vine Borers!
The mature Squash Vine Borer is a stout dark gray moth with 'hairy' red hind legs, opaque front wings, and clear hind wings with dark veins. Unlike most moths, they fly about the plants during the daytime, appearing more like a paper wasp than a moth.
This insect overwinters as a full grown larva or a pupa one to two inches below the soil surface. If it has not already done so, the larva pupates in the spring. Adult moths begin to emerge about the time the plants begin to run, and moth flight continues through mid August. The small brown eggs, laid individually on leaf stalks and vines, hatch in seven to 10 days. The newly hatched larva immediately bores into the stem. A larva feeds for 14 to 30 days before exiting the stem to pupate in the soil. There are 1 to 2 generations per year.
VivaGrow Squash Vine Borer traps include a pheromone to naturally lure mature moths to a sticky surface where they cannot escape, keeping them from being able to produce larvae which feed on and damage plants. 100% safe for pets, non toxic.
Includes: 2x extra-sticky wet glue traps & 2x lures (2 complete traps)
Instructions: Hang traps at 2-3' height, 3-4' away from grow area or garden plot to draw borer moths away. Place with care to avoid wind and rain as possible. Use one trap + lure per 100-150 square feet of planted area. Deploy traps at first planting, replacing traps as needed through August for best results. Lure lasts for approximately 60 days/8 weeks.

Effective and they do last a long time. The lures and the glue will last even longer if you keep them out of the direct sunlight.
Extremely effective. I can't believe how many borers got caught as fast as they did. Really incredible. 2 traps lasted all season - we did not put them out simultaneously. We deployed the second of the two traps after the first one was full of borer moths.
This is a good trap they do exactly what they describe. Hard to find anything that works.
Does a pretty good job. Really sticky.
REally sticky glue. Not sure what kind of bugs are in there. These should be on PRIME for Amazon but they are not. Why not?
Works like a charm. All the Vivatraps we have tried in our garden have been great. If you ask nicely they will send you a discount code!
Awesome trap for the squash vine borer. Taking these moths down in New England. They don't stand a chance! You hear that, vine borers?? We're comin' for ya!!
Got these from Walmart the first time. They were good so we are back to get them here form now on. The price is considerably more reasonable if you purchase directly and especially if you wait for a sale code (hint: major holidays they usually do this).
These bugs are CREEPY. We did not know how many we had until we started using these vivatraps in 2017. The moths are gross and mean looking. They need to be put outside a little bit early so they first ones get caught right away. They mate fast.
