  • 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. Important → The Delta traps must be installed with the overture facing the main regional winds.
  • Traps density: 1-2 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 due to an elevated capture number or dust and dirt accumulated.
Mass trapping:

They reduce the pest pressure and they can be together with another method.

  • Use FUNNEL TRAP, add an authorized insecticide tablet, in accordance with current legislation, in the interior. 
  • Put 8-10 traps/Ha, distributed in a uniform way through the parcel. Depending on the captured number of insects you should reinforce the borders and/or the areas where there are more captures. 
  • The program must be active during the whole crop growing season. Keep the traps until 2-3 weeks after removing the crop and its residues.
  • When the population level is really high you can carry out reinforced treatments with authorized fythosanitary products in accordance with current legislation, always in a rational way.

These indications are a general guide, and aim to provide the user a starting point for the implementation of his monitoring and/or mass trapping programs. The conditions and local practices can develop the need of programs' personalization.
