FLYPACK® DACUS TRAP
Ready-to-use insecticide trap for the Olive Fruit Fly control (Bactrocera oleae)
FLYPACK DACUS TRAP is a trap that uses “Attract & Kill” technology. It is composed of a plastic capture cone (inside which the attractive dispenser and the pheromone should be placed) and of a lid treated with insecticide in the inner side. Insects are attracted into the trap by the dispenser, the pheromone and the yellow color. Once inside the trap, they come into contact with the insecticide and die. Compared to other methods, the advantage of this trap is a better understanding of the catches curves and of the dynamics of attacks accordingly, since the insects remain trapped inside the device; in this way, a prompt action can be taken. The attractive dispenser and the pheromone used in this trap are specific against Bactrocera oleae. Being the insecticide kept into the trap, FLYPACK DACUS TRAP doesn't spread active ingredients in the environment and on foodstuffs, and it is safe to the operators. The use of FLYPACK DACUS TRAP is allowed in Organic Farming.
