Trap for the mass trapping of Tuta absoluta
TUTAROLL BLACK is a trap that controls the attacks of the leaf miner moth Tuta absoluta (tomato borer) through the mass trapping. It consists of a plastic tape covered with a natural sticky substance, highly adhesive; it is 30 cm wide and 100 m long and has to be placed inside the greenhouses in order to catch as many specimens as possible.
TUTAROLL BLACK (TUTAROLL-B)
It is used for the control of Tuta absoluta. The black tape acts like a natural pheromone attractant. Especially in biological controlled areas, it does not affect beneficials negatively. It is recommended to use a 100 m tape along the entire perimeter of the greenhouse in which the pest must be controlled. The black-colored tape allows to achieve more catches, avoiding to attract indirectly bees and/or bumblebees.
HOW TO INSTALL IT:
A special specific pheromone for Tuta absoluta has been applied on TUTAROLL BLACK. The pheromone applied on TUTAROLL BLACK is activated at the point of use and will begin to attract the insect once rolled out inside the greenhouse. The wide sticky surface offers great opportunities to counteract the pest in an efficient way.
In the greenhouse, the traps must be fixed or mounted between poles or on an appropriate base, placed on surfaces of sufficient length, so that they are evenly distributed throughout the greenhouse.
Compared to other methods used against Tuta (water traps, delta traps), the adhesive surface in synergy with the pheromone attractant allow a greater number of catches.
Storage conditions: to be stored in a cool and dry place.
Storage time: about 1 year under appropriate conditions.
Duration of the catching period: on average 45-60 days, in the absence of powders and washing agents.
