The resistance created for synthetic chemical pesticides by the insects and introduction of new synthetic pesticides have affected the nature and non-targeted organisms. These issues gave rise to ‘organic farming and bio-control’ a new method of controlling the insect pest which was cost effective and eco-friendly. Bio-control agents and trapping system are the major techniques which enable to facilitate and promote organic farming. In the similar sequence of trapping system, we are introducing a new trap design which is a single solution to variety of insect pest in the agricultural fields. This combination trap has the features of light trap, sticky trap and pheromone trap arranged in a detachable and replaceable form. It has a simple design and materials required can be easily procured. This trap can be used for any type of crops as it have trapping system for almost all type of insect pest. It is cost effective, portable and has less weight which will be useful to the farmers and agriculturist.
Key words: Bio control, Organic farming, Combination trap, Agricultural field, Cost effective.
