Tobaguard LS/EE

The Tobaguard monitoring range against tobacco pests is supplied with a slow release dispenser

Formulated for the controlled release of pheromones to the surrounding areas. This range of traps is designed to provide a discreet and simple to use solution for monitoring pests.


Tobaguard LS/EE targets Lasioderma serricorne, the cigarette beetle and Ephestia elutella, the tobacco moth. These pests cause serious damage to facilities handling dry plant produce including tobacco, both in the refined cigarette forms and the coarse unprocessed forms. The cigarette beetle is also a minor pest of oilcake, oilseeds, cereals, dried fruit, sage, flour and other animal products. Regular monitoring of the Tobaguard traps makes early detection of infestation possible. Monitoring for pests should be at the forefront of pest management programmes, as early pest diagnosis will increase the likelihood of minimising damage and gaining maximum control.

Benefits of Tobaguard

  • Highly attractive pheromones to lure both tobacco moths and cigarette beetles
  • Specialist food lure to further enhance attraction
  • Printed with grid pattern for ease of counting

Why choose Tobaguard from Russell IPM?

Tobaguard LS/EE contains pheromones for both Lasioderma serricorne and Ephestia elutella, therefore reducing the number of traps which need to be monitored and maintained. The traps will ensure maximum insect catch so that you are alerted to the presence of unwanted pests at an early stage, detecting the tobacco pests before they become a major problem to enable timely and effective treatment. Tobaguard is suitable for use in food warehouses, food manufacturing facilities, tobacco storage facilities and tobacco shops and anywhere cigarette beetles are a problem.
