1. Yellow sticky trap, used for monitoring and detecting small winged insects like Asian citrus psyllid and whiteflies.

2. Live catch trap. While this may seem humane to catch and release wildlife in other locations, it is illegal to release most live animals anywhere except on your own property. See the Pest Notes: Skunks and Pest Notes: Raccoons for more information about managing these pests.

3. Pheromone traps can detect clothes moths and Indian meal moths. Make sure you identify which one you have so you buy the right trap with the right pheromone.

4. Conibear trap for catching ground dwelling animals such as ground squirrels, tree squirrels, and rabbits.

5. Monitoring trap for spotted wing Drosophila.

6. Yellowjacket trap

7. Mouse and rat traps
