A number of groups of insects are attracted to specific colors. This principle is widely used in life. For example, you need be careful when choosing your laundry detergent as some contain UV brighteners, this in combination with yellow and blue clothes will almost definitely send bees to buzzing your way. Though yellows, blues and UV will attract bees, at least they will be happy bees thinking about nectar.
That’s the reason why colored objects have been used to develop trapping devices for collecting insects and monitoring their populations. Horse and deer flies, for example, are attracted to shiny black objects such as beach balls. These are used to increase attract these species to canopy or malaise traps. Yellow is attractive to many insects commonly found in gardens or greenhouses, including winged adult white flies, aphids, leaf miner flies, fungus gnats and thrips (which are also reportedly attracted to blue). Colored cards or other objects such as plastic disposable drinking cups coated with a sticky substance like Tanglefoot make excellent traps to collect and monitor populations of these insects.
Besides that, a over three years study shows that yellow sticky traps can significantly suppress the population increase of adult and immature whiteflies in the greenhouse.
Yellow is attractive to many insects commonly found in gardens or greenhouses, including winged adult white flies, aphids, leaf miner flies, fungus gnats and thrips (which are also reportedly attracted to blue).

Yellow sticky traps are quite valuable to growers. They are used for one of two things: Trapping or monitoring. Putting traps out in numbers can be effective in reducing airborne adult populations of certain pests like whiteflies and fungus gnats by trapping them. If used at the rate of one trap per 250 square feet, though—or one per 1000 square feet in larger or monoculture greenhouses —and checked, pests counted, on a regular schedule, changed as needed, and the results charted, sticky traps can be an effective monitoring tool.
Use KMERLIFE yellow sticky traps to trap/monitor most pests. (Includes whiteflies, fungus gnats, shore flies, thrips, winged aphids, leafminers, scales, and many others). But be aware they may inadvertently capture parasitic wasps, midges, and beetles. Use with care. Reduce hang-duration if needed, just be consistent.
