Nu-Lure is to be combined with suitable insecticides as a spray mix additive and functions by attracting the insects to the insecticide to which it is added. The amino acids and proteins in Nu-Lure attract certain insects to feed upon the spray residues. Apply the bait spray to host crops, trees, bushes or other plants and surrounding vegetation. Total area treatments are more effective than small area or small orchard treatments.
