FIELD OF USE:
It can be used both for the monitoring and for the mass trapping.

It is advisable to keep a distance of about 25 m between each trap. In case of mass trapping, use the traps continuously for some years in order to reach good results.
HOW TO INSTALL:
Place the trap at a height of about 150 cm from the ground, using a support. The pheromone has to be hung inside SUPER FOREST by using an appropriate string, taking care to position it about in the middle of the trap. Normally, SUPER FOREST should be installed during the second half of March. The pheromones remain active for 5-6 weeks. After this period, it is recommended to replace them, even if the refill is not completely used up. Check the traps periodically (extracting the specific drawer) in order to keep them clean and record the catches.
