  • Pheromone X10: includes 10 times the standard pheromone dose.
  • Application for the monitoring in treated parcels with sexual confusion.

  • 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: 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.Tolerance levels: 2 insects/trap during two consecutive days. Determinate the treatment period depending on the temperatures during the period. Deal with authorized products and follow the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Keep the traps 2-3 weeks after harvest and its residues.
Mass trapping:

Massping: trap

They reduce the pest pressure and they can be used as a complement of other management methods but they are not effective as a management method by its own.

  • Use FUNNEL TRAP with an authorized insecticide tablet in the interior. 
  • Put 8-10 traps by Hectare, in the inside and borders of the parcel. 

  • Ref: CYPO-0010BB   Pouches 1 unit/ Boxes of 250 pouches.
