  • Sexual type pheromone.
  • A septum dispenser (Bromobutyl).
  • Duration: 4-6 weeks, depending on the environmental conditions.
  • Packed in aluminium-PE pouches
  • Conservation: in freezer, 2 years.

  • Put 1 specific pheromone capsule per trap  
  • Traps density: 2-4 traps/Ha. 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. In the greenhouse, put one trap every 500m². Put at least one trap/greenhouse.
  • Settle the traps before growing or replanting. Keep the traps over the crop. Important → The Delta traps must be installed with the overture facing the main regional winds.
  • 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 supplement for other management methods.

  • Use FUNNEL TRAPS. It is advisable to put an insecticide tablet (DDVP) inside every trap.
  • Put 8-10 traps per hectare inside the parcel and in its borders. 
  • In the greenhouse, put a trap every 300 to 500 m², with a minimum of 2 traps per greenhouse.

  •  Pouches of 1 unit. / Boxes of 250 pouches
