NO. 25@- CATCH-IT TM -
Trap for insects in greenhouse
@ 041226
At the Paph meeting of Japan paphiopedilum association (JPA) in Oct. 2004, some member introduced ' Catch it ' to the attendances. Many members got the small samples cut from original and tried in their greenhouse. After one month, some members askd me to buy this because the colored paper trapped so many insects that they had never expected to see such insects in autumn-winter greenhouse. We have several products like this, but they said ' Catch it is the best '.
