It is a detachable plastic trap, treated with an UV-rays protector for avoiding discoloration. It is also resistant to blows. It consists of three parts (see attached figure).
The traps must be hung in safe and shadowed places (trees, warehouses ceilings, etc.). The setting is simple, since it enough to hang the trap from the supplied cord and load it with the sexual pheromone following these steps:
2.- Take out a Vapona tablet from the envelope and place it at the bottom of the FLY TRAP.
3.- Hung a trap from a branch at an approximate height of 170 cm from the ground.
4.- The pheromone and the Vapona tablet should be changed approximately from two and a half to three months.
5.-Avoid the manual handling with the pheromone or the Vapona tablet since this may affect to its proper working.
2.- MASS TRAPPING.
- It is normally used in the insects massive capture, being completely innocuous since there is no contact with plants, animals or people.
Once the trap is full of insects, it is emptied and reloaded with attracting-substance or the corresponding pheromone.
The average useful life of the trap is several seasons, being reloaded when necessary without removing them from where they are (warehouse, farm, etc.)
4.- AVERAGE USEFUL LIFE
The different elements of which the lot is composed have an average useful life of:
|Sexual pheromone||2.5 – 3 months|
|Vapona tablet||2.5 – 3 months|
|Fly trap||At least two years are guaranteed|
5.- NUMBER OF TRAPS PER SURFACE
The quantity and distribution of traps, depending on crops and uses are as follow:
1.- Fruit trees and citric fruit trees
* 1 trap + sexual pheromone/5000 m2 for evaluating flight curves (Monitoring).
* 2 traps + sexual pheromone/1000 m2 for mass trapping.
