Sooo someone might have a shiny new mothtrap (Heath kind) and I'm curious about the placement of the eggboxes inside. Is it best to place them inside as full trays of 6 or to cut up the cup segments and drop them instead. I've done some searching and it seems the former is the preferred option, however I'm sure I've seen some traps using the latter (heck I think I even saw one with its own sold plastic eggcups).

the moths will hide inside the cup segments so don't rip them in bits.

I've always used larger sheets of egg boxes where possible, but I don't think it actually makes much difference to the moths, these are just so the moths can hide somewhere and feel secure. It is also often an idea (in good weather) to place some outside the trap, as you willl often get some that don't go in (also check well around the trap for this reason).
Thanks for the suggestions guys
I'll keep in mind the point about putting boxes around the trap and not just within the trap itself!
