Use SCARABtrap for: Darkling beetles/lesser mealworms.
Packaging: Black conical trap with a protective cap that snaps securely onto a white plastic base.
When to use SCARABtrap?
Use SCARABtrap to control darkling beetle/lesser mealworm (Alphitobius diaperinus) populations in poultry houses and egg-laying facilities.
How does SCARABtrap work?
SCARABtrap holds darkling beetle bait inside its base. The beetles climb up the sides of the conical cap and fall inside, where they remain until they can be disposed of.
Put the bait (poultry feed) and weight (such as a large stone, especially for large birds like turkeys) in the bowl to stabilize the trap.
Attach the conical cap by snapping it onto the pins on the bowl.
Position traps at the feeder line, entrances and along walls, especially close to any heaters.
Best working conditions SCARABtrap
SCARABtraps should be kept in the poultry house throughout the year, especially from spring to autumn (when the darkling beetle populations peak several times) and should be emptied regularly. For best results, install SCARABtrap before each batch of poultry, at the same time heating begins, and keep traps in the facilities during the clean out phase.
Store SCARABtraps at room temperature.
