Insect traps are baited with a harmless pheromone only attractive to the specific insect pest. In the Oriental and Melon fly traps, there is also a small amount of pesticide in the lure. This pesticide is similar to the type normally found in flea collars. It will only affect insects responding to the lure involved with these traps.

Mediterranean Fruit Fly, Oriental Fruit Fly, and the Glassy-winged Sharpshooter insect traps are placed in yards for 6 weeks and then rotated to another property. Melon Fruit Fly traps remain for approximately 10 weeks, and the Gypsy moth and Japanese Beetle traps remain in place for the trapping season which runs from the end of May through late August.
All insect traps are checked approximately every 2 weeks.
