uBloomd Green Sticky Traps NATURE COLLECTION 10 Pack
Say goodbye to plant flies, including Fungus Gnats, Thrips, Whiteflies, Aphids and more. This is uBloomd's new Nature Collection. A multi-pack with 10 Green Sticky Traps in the shapes of Spring. Butterflies, flowers and leaves in assorted shapes. Stealth pest control never looked so good!
How do sticky traps work?
Ever noticed tiny bugs flying erratically around your plants (or floating in your cuppa)? About the size of a fruit fly, but skinny like a teeny tiny mosquito? Yep, you've probably got yourself a Fungus Gnat family setting up home in your houseplants. The flying adults are getting busy populating your plants, laying eggs that hatch into larvae that feed in your soil and, you guessed it, turn into more adults. The cycle continues.
UBloomd Green Sticky Traps are called 'stealth traps' because they sit discreetly in your plants down at the soil level where the adults lay their eggs. The adults are attracted to the colour and scent, get stuck and die on the trap. And with one adult laying up to 200 eggs, every catch is a big win for breaking the lifecycle. Being green, and the perfect smaller size for houseplants, UBloomd don't yell 'I've got pests!' like the big yellow traps do, and don't spoil your enjoyment of your plants.
Is green better than yellow?
UBloomd tested yellow, blue, red and green traps. Same size, same conditions, and green averaged 12% more pests caught than other colours.
What's included in a uBloomed kit?
There are three designs available. Original Round, Monstera Leaf and new Nature Collection multi-pack with mixed shapes. One uBloomed kit includes: 10 stealth sticky traps, 10 biodegradable wooden support sticks, and an instructions card, all neatly in a compostable slide-zip bag.
How do you use them?
Grab one trap and one wooden support stick. Remove the protective layer off one side of the trap. Stick the trap to the support stick. Peel off the other side, then slide your stealth trap into the soil, ready to get to work. If your trap doesn't want to stay put on the stick, you can also just stick the trap to the inside of your plant's pot or cover pot for the same awesome results.
How long does 1 trap last?
As you can imagine, this depends how bad your infestation is, but also how dusty your plants and the air around them is, so there isn't an exact number of months. In uBloomd's tests a trap (once opened) stays sticky for up to 6 months. Unpeeled, stored in a cool, dry place, they can be used up a year after purchase, so you're safe to stock up. You may find yours stays sticky shorter or longer depending on your conditions.
One trap per infested plant is recommended, and because the Fungus Gnat lifecycle is as short as 17 days or as long as 4 to 5 weeks at different times of year, and treating them tends to take at least 2 lifecycles minimum, you'll want enough traps for at least 2 months based on 1 trap per infested plant.
FASTER KILL: If you use sticky traps along with something that also kills the larvae in the soil (like Mozzie Bits or Oxygen Plus), then you'll give yourself the best chance of not only eradicating them entirely, but also getting rid of them much faster than only catching the adults, or only killing the larvae.
PREP TIP: You want pests not dust on your traps, so a little prep-dust will help. A wipe of your plant shelves and dust of your plant's leaves before you add your uBloomd trap is a good idea to extend how long one trap stays sticky by having less dust around (I love Plant Runner Neem Oil Leaf Shine for that along with a 100% recycled Leaf Love Dusting Glove). Your plants will love you for that too as dust blocks the light your plant's need to survive. Plus other nasties like Spider Mites also love dusty leaves so win win!
The story behind uBloomd
UBloomd were created in Australia by clever founder and fellow plant mum Emily. Like so many of us (my hand's up too), Emily started off her plant journey as an over-waterer, and unfortunately suffered the same uninvited flying guests that I did at the start of my plant parent adventure. Yep, Fungus Gnats.
Emily's goal by creating uBloomd was to provide all plant parents a simple, better-looking, more discreet solution to those yellow plastic traps. Thank you Emily!
