  • Sexual type pheromone.
  • A septum dispenser (Bromobutyl).
  • Duration: 3-4 weeks, depending on the environmental conditions.
  • Packed in aluminium-PE pouches
  • Conservation: in freezer, 2 years.

  • Put 1 specific pheromone capsule per trap.  
  • Put the traps in the upper third of the tree, in April before the starting of the flights. Due to the flight changes keep the traps during the whole season. Important → The Delta traps must be installed with the overture facing the main regional winds.
  • Traps density: 2 traps/parcel. In bigger crops than 3-4, put 1 trap/Ha. Preferably we will put one in the centre and the other one in the borders to determinate if the pest is already in the crop or define the entry points.
  • Control the traps once a week. Remove the captured insects. In Delta traps, replace the gummed based when it loses its adhesive capability.
  • Keep the traps 2-3 weeks after harvest and its residues.
Mass trapping:

They reduce the pest pressure and they can be used as a complement of other management methods. 

  • Use FUNNEL TRAP, add inside an authorized insecticide in accordance with the current legislation.
  • put 5-10 traps per Hectare, distributed through the inside of the parcel and its borders.
