In the orchard, insect traps are an indispensable tool to fight the lurking fruit trees flying pests. Moth, hornets, fruit flies: depending on the type of plant, a different pest can attack it and ruin the crop.
Industrial chemicals on the market seem to be a convenient and quick solution because they give the illusion of quickly defeating the problem, but it is not so because, although effective, these products contain different types of pollutants, pesticides and chemicals that not only are dangerous to the environment, but they end up inevitably in the vegetables we grow, in the fruits we collect and put on the table (and assimilated by our organism).
The eco-friendly traps for insects, with food bait and without chemicals, are the ideal solution because they ensure a continuous mass trapping: put in place since the beginning of the season, they can be used all year round, even when, at the end of the period, only the last insects remain in circulation. But the most important thing is that they are adaptable to the seasonality of the plant and of the insect that damages it, which guarantees a targeted fight and a greater effectiveness of the method.
