The tobacco cutworm monitoring and pre-warning system was designed with the characteristic of “lure-specificity pheromone attracting target male species”, tobacco cutworm pheromone was placed in an insect trap to attract male tobacco cutworm to enter the pest trap. The number of pest has been counted by an infrared sensor was attached to the connector ring. Through LoRa wireless transmission and 4G mobile telecommunication transmission connected to the Internet, data was sent to the cloud server
