An effective attractant for striped, spotted, and western spotted cucumber beetles.
Cucumber beetles are a major problem wherever squash, cucumbers, watermelon, pumpkin, and other cucurbits are grown. Beetles can kill or severely stunt seedlings, and later, on older plants, can damage stems and fruits. The beetle is well known for transmitting bacterial wilt and some viruses. Gummy stem blight is also associated with beetle damage. Larvae feed on roots reducing yield. Place the lure on a card trap. Replace when filled with beetles or dirty. The lure is attractive for 3-4 weeks depending on temperature. Store in a cool place.
