Untitled_design__59___1_-removebg-preview.png

Product Description:

This trap is designed for economical and budgetary purpose. It is used in monitoring fruit flies. It has two components 1) Clear top & 2) Yellow base. Inside the clear top is a platform on which pheromone attractant is placed Once inside the trap, the insect is attracted by the light coming through the clear top and continues to try and escape upwards. The exhausted insect drops down into the base filled with liquid and drowns
 

How They Work:

The male moths which are attracted by the female pheromone lure placed under the lid of the clear top enter the trap. Once inside the trap, the insect is attracted by the light coming through the clear top and continues to try and escape upwards. The exhausted insect drops down into the base filled with liquid and drowns. These traps are installed in the fields at the rate of 5-7 traps per acre for monitoring. Traps should normally be attached to stakes at crop height and placed within the crop with at least 50m between each trap. To avoid affecting the efficiency of the trapping system it is strongly recommended that traps be used only for the one species. Never use the dispensers for other insect species in these traps
