Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

1:5:10:242 EcoTip: Pheromones are used by insects to attract a mate. Many are currently available for attracting insects into traps where they die. Aerial spraying of pheromones is also being used as a method for insect control. The idea is to confuse insects so they can’t find a mate. While traps with pheromones seems like a good idea, exposing people by aerial spraying of entire communities has become quite controversial.

 Additional Information:

A number of pheromone attractants and traps are available from ARBICO-organics.
