WASP TRAPS: WE MUST PLACE THEM IN SPRING

We must not wait for the fruits on the trees to ripen before using bio traps if we are to prevent infestations from wasps and hornets in orchards. Rather, they must be placed in early spring so that they can effectively contribute to a reduction in the rate of reproduction of these flying pests.

 

With the use of our bio traps Tap Trap and Vaso Trap it is possible to effectively control flying pests without resorting to - or at least reducing - the use of pesticides that are harmful to the environment as well us to our health.

 

VASO TRAP: THE NATURAL METHOD AGAINST FLIES

Vaso Trap is a natural and effective method for trapping common flies, fruit flies, and many other types of flying pests. It allows us to recycle 1 kg honey glass jars as containers for food baits that are easily home-made.

 

The most feared predators for bees are wasps and hornets and, in some parts of Italy, the dreaded Vespa velutina.

No need to have an orchard to support the wasps and hornets in circulation: they make nests everywhere, in attics rather than normally on trees, or in hidden cavities, usually in quiet places, where they can cultivate the undisturbed colony.
The concept does not change: it is now that the biotraps have to be prepared because it is very important to eliminate the queens and avoid the population.

In the orchard, it is necessary a natural defense against harmful flying insects in agronomy and civil, through a continuous mass capture, to significantly reduce the need for chemical pesticides.

Asian hornet queens hibernate in early winter, many of which are already fertile, sheltering in protected cavities, such as heaps of wood, more easily in putrid or wet areas, and precisely in spring they come out of winter.
 

Roam voracious: they need sweet substances (they look for pollen, flowers ...) to feed properly after months of rest and recover their strength to start looking for places favorable to the construction of the nest for the future colonies.

After placing two 1.5V AA batteries (not included) in its battery compartment, insert the luminaire into its bracket inside one of the semispheres, then assemble the sphere.

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.

Suitable glues range from sprayable to brushable, specific for insects and tube glue (such as mouse glue), all of which are available in garden centres and specialised stores.
