About Us

Our Mission

We protect your green spaces from harmful insects, respecting the environment and your needs, with the aim of producing healthy, wholesome fruits and vegetables.

 

My name is Roberto Carello and since 2004 I have been inventing and experimenting with ecological traps for flying pests that today, professionals and hobbyists in Italy and in 20 countries around the world, use to defend orchards, gardens and vegetable gardens.

The idea of a trap for harmful insects came to me 15 years ago when I moved to the countryside with my family. I was passionate about greenery like you: my wife and I had a nice garden and a vegetable garden too, and put some fruit plants in it, starting to experiment with baits to catch pests such as fruit flies and hornets that ruined our work, without using pesticides or poisons.

Amongst old traditional methods of flying pest control, we had the technique of cutting plastic bottles and placing them upside down with suitable baits. This was a clever method which, however, was too problematic: the bait was not effective, the trap too long to prepare and not very selective.

THE PROFESSIONALIZATION OF A METHOD

And it is with the aim of overcoming to all this that Tap Trap® was born, the first chromotropic trap for flying pests with alimentary bait, which has precisely professionalized that method already known and used: the mass capture of flying insects through the recycling of plastic bottles.

Moreover the technique has been definitely improved: the more effective bait, the more selective capture, the enhanced attractiveness, and the ease of use, have led to a very durable and highly recyclable trap. So much so that today it is used to prevent infestations and reduce the rate of reproduction of harmful insects.

"The first professionals in Italy in the ecological protection of plants and gardens from flying harmful insects".

We like transparency and honesty.

We have never proposed our traps for flying insects as a definitive solution to the many problems in defending crops against pests, but we have certainly proposed them as a valuable aid in preventing infestations: the result is a marked reduction in insect populations, achieved through preventive catches and proper use of the traps.

From the beginning, to make Tap Trap® known, we have participated in countless trade fairs, national and international ones, meeting and listening to thousands of people, their needs and their problems in the care of the garden, orchards and vegetable gardens.

It was with this in mind that I designed and patented:

  • Vaso Trap® the version of the biotrap that, by recycling the 1 kg honey jar, also meets the needs of those who want to place the trap on the floor and not to hang it.

  • Lima Trap®: a little device capable of keeping gardens and vegetable gardens of those who, exhausted by the invasion of snails and slugs, can not really do without using the granular snail. Thanks to this small device, you can avoid spreading the slug pellets on the ground and you can significantly reduce the quantities used.

WHAT WE STAND FOR

Our insect traps, in addition to a low environmental impact, considerably reduce the need to use pesticides, which is a significant benefit for our health and that of others.

The positive feedback we have received from our customers for many years and from the experiments of various research institutes has validated the importance of prevention in defence, encouraging us to constantly search for ecological solutions as an alternative to pesticides.
