Squash Vine Borers are a serious pest for growers of giant pumpkins and other vine crops east of the Rocky Mountains.

SVB traps are a proven way to intercept the Squash Vine Borer in the moth stage. The SVB Trap comes complete with a durable plastic trap, an SVB lure, and vapor tape to kill the moth. The new green color discourages beneficial pollinators like foraging bumblebees from getting trapped but still has the same effectiveness against the SVB moth. Also traps 

Spruce Budworm, Tussock Moth, Pine Shoot Moth, Cutworm, Armyworm, Beet Armyworm, Cabbage Looper, Nantucket Pine Tip Moth, Southwestern Corn Borer, and many other moths and beetles.


One generation of Squash Vine Borer per year is common in the Northern States, with the moths being active from mid-June to mid-July. In the South, two generations may occur each year and may be active as early as March. Adult moths trapped this season mean less of a problem next year since larvae overwinter in a tough cocoon in the soil. Up to 200 SVB Moths have been trapped by one giant pumpkin grower in a single season.

Once Squash Vine Borers start showing up in the traps, we also recommend spraying plants with our BioRepel which is an all organic pest control effective with a wide range of insect pests.
