In both large and small Orchards, it is necessary to significantly reduce the use of pesticides, by adopting a natural method of pest control. This can be done through the mass trapping of flying pests that our innovative bio-traps make possible.

Vespa velutina
Cydia pomonella
Vespa crabro, vespa mandarinia, vespula germanica and common wasp
Ceratitis Capitata

Use the following recipes

WASPS, HORNETS, ASIAN HORNET (Vespa velutina) - Tap Trap

Half litre of beer + 2 tablespoon of sugar or honey

Alternatively: Half litre of water + 3 tablespoons of sugar or honey + a glass of vinegar

Alternatively: Sweet white wine (or white wine sweetened with sugar or honey) + 20 to 30 millilitres of mint syrup (roughly equivalent to a small glass)

DROSOPHILA SUZUKII (Spotted wing Drosophila) - Red Tap Trap

Pour into the bottle 250 ml of apple cider vinegar + 100 ml of red wine + 1 tablespoons of sugar

MOTH, CARPUS and MANY OTHER TYPES OF LEPIDOPTERS - Tap Trap

Blend 6 or 7 tablespoons of sugar to one liter of wine and leave it to rest for 15 days with 15 cloves and half cinnamon stick
After 15 days, blend the mixture in 3 liters of water


Four liters of this bait should fill about 8 traps (pour ½ litre of the substance in each)

 
FRUIT FLIES and MEDITERRANEAN FRUIT FLIES (cherry, citrus, walnut, olive orchards, etc.) - Tap Trap

Pour into the bottle ½ litre of liquid ammonia (the one used for cleaning, with no added scent) and add some raw fish scraps (such sardines, anchovies or similar).

SFERA TRAP

After inserting the two 1.5V AA batteries (not included), insert the luminaire into its seat inside one of the semispheres. Sfera Trap is now ready to be assembled - How to do it

 

Before applying the glue, wrap the sphere with a transparent plastic film (such as cling film, or two clear shower cups); then apply a suitable glue.

In the event of loss of adhesion, the glue can be reapplied several times.

 

In addition to using only glue, or glue and attractants on it, Sfera Trap can also support insecticides and pheromones.

 

Practical advice: Use disposable gloves in the preparation of the sphere and the various products used. To avoid damage from possible spillage of glue, place a protective sheet underneath the sphere, such as cardboard or paper. In the eventuality of glue spillages these can be removed using white spirit or turpentine - How to do it
