Because they allow you to fight the infestations of flying harmful insects in an ecological way, helping you to reduce the use of pesticides in your orchards or green areas (civil). With the recycling of commonly used containers, such as plastic bottles of mineral water or glass jars of 1 Kg honey, and the preparation of the do-it-yourself baits we recommend (see recipes section), you will get a trap versatile, ecological and very economical.

Insects pollinators (bees, bumblebees, etc.) have no interest in food with the solutions we recommend, since their nutritive source consists of pollen and nectar.

The optimal placement is at least one trap each plant.

The traps are placed on the plants in the area that varies between south, south / east, south / west (well exposed to the sun) at man height, then between one and fifty meters and two meters in height.

The traps are to be positioned from the first sunny days of spring so as to begin the preventive catches of insects that are the reproducers of the generations to follow.

In general, from the first positioning of the traps it is advisable to replace the bait after 30-40 days at the most.

In the event that after a dozen days there is not a significant catch, the reasons may be various: low temperature or insects shortage, but generally the problem is the wrong placement of the traps, solvable by changing the location of the location until you find the most suitable.
