Blue and yellow sticky tapes as advertised

Asked May 24, 2020, 3:10 PM EDT

What do you think about blue and yellow sticky tapes for attracting a huge number of insects in the garden? I'm most concerned about aphids and squash bugs and it says they are among those it will attract.

Sticky traps, whatever the color, are used indoors and outdoors mostly to detect the presence and relative abundance of insect pests. The traps alone usually do not comprise an effective control.
