HOW TO FIGHT APPLE WORMS

verme delle meleIn the orchard, insect traps are an indispensable tool to combat what we commonly call apple worms, but which also infest pears, nuts, medlars, plums and many other fruits. These are lepidoptera, carpophagous (i.e. fruit-feeding) butterflies that deposit their eggs on plants. The larvae of these eggs feed on the fruit, digging tunnels, just when it is ripening and treatments are no longer possible. The harvest is ruined.

HOW TO AVOID WORMS IN FRUIT

When the larvae become butterflies, they reproduce by carrying out further generations and this is where action is needed: by trapping the adults, excessive proliferation and, consequently, excessive infestation of crops is prevented. Among the most effective natural methods available for controlling codling moth, lepidoptera and orchard moths are Tap Trap and Vaso Trap, selective traps with chromatic attraction, and Sfera Trap, a non-selective glue trap, which guarantees constant attraction day and night.

THE ADVANTAGES OF ECO-FRIENDLY FOOD BAIT TRAPS

  • They are used with a home-made bait
  • They prevent the rain from diluting the content, which would decrease the effectiveness of the bait
  • They are suitable for the defence of all types of fruits
  • The bait tailored to attract the particular insects to be trapped
  • They can be used in all seasons and all year around, depending on the presence of the insect to be caught
  • They do not pollute
  • They are recyclable
  • They are re-usable
  • they make the use of pesticides unnecessary

 

THE ADVANTAGES OF USING THE GLUE TRAP SFERA TRAP

  • Very attractive yellow colour in daylight hours
  • Prolonged attractiveness at night thanks to an internal LED
  • Also ideal in closed environments such as food storage warehouses
  • It can be used with pheromone lures
