Training Comment

Scoutbox is an easy-to-use tool that requires no specific skills. One person is more than enough to run a Scoutbox. Using Scoutbox and its user interface requires only basic computer skills.

Cost Detail

Scoutbox's ongoing costs are limited to an annual fee that gives you access to the database, user interface, and customer support. To use the Scoutbox effectively, breeders must use special yellow unmarked glue traps (10 cm / 25 cm).

Working speed

300 sticky trap tiles per day

Acreage covered

Depending on your organization and the number of traps you count, you will need more or less one Scoutbox per 10 hectares per day.
