|Trap||18 - Plastic Bucket Trap||3001 - General Trapping Procedure|
Separate traps by at least 20 meters (65 feet).
Place traps on a 5 ft. pole (bucket traps will be roughly 4 ft. off the ground).
Whenever possible, place traps in the shade and close to Buxus plants (traps should not touch foliage).

IMPORTANT: Do not include lures for other target species in the trap when surveying for this target.
Climate Suitability Map
A Climate suitability map is now available. This survey should only be considered in the states with appropriate climate conditions and suitable hosts for this moth.
The map was produced by the SAFARIS Team. SAFARIS is a modeling framework that enables PPQ to quickly respond to emergencies, efficiently survey for pests, and assess potential pest impacts by collecting critical geospatial data and developing predictive models. SAFARIS is developed and maintained by the NC State University, Center for Integrated Pest Management (CIPM) with support from the PPQ-S&T Plant Pest Risk Analysis (PPRA) Laboratory.
The SAFARIS team used a climate suitability model for box tree moth occurrence in the continental United States to support CAPS survey planning. The model predicts the suitability of an area for box tree moth occurrence based on the likelihood of three favorable climate conditions for the disease occurring using tools and data within SAFARIS. The detailed method used in this assessment is described here.
Cydalima perspectalis is the only species of Cydalima that has been detected in North America.
Several Diaphania species are present in North America and have wing patterns that are similar to C. perspectalis. Please see the pest datasheet for a complete list of similar looking moths.
