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 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.
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.
Slugs and snails do not only eat the vegetables we grow in our garden, but also the flowers and plants that we have in the garden, in the greenhouse or in flower pots. They are really voracious and very often, in prolonged periods of rainy days, they become a real invasion, difficult to contain with natural methods.
Many people do not want to use chemicals to get rid of snails in the garden: the problem is that there are often no alternatives, when there are really a lot.
We grow vegetables ourselves, take care of our vegetable garden all year long, with passion and sacrifice in the hope not only of saving, but especially of eating healthy and healthy products.
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.
With the arrival of summer, flies, mosquitoes, insects of all kinds are abundant where we keep the animals like cows or horses.
Eliminating insects from the stable is really difficult, but extremely necessary because they annoy and sting our horses without stop. It is often necessary to disinfect the entire barn, or spray a pesticide on the horse itself.
Flies are very common insects present in various species in every country and in addition to creating discomfort, can transmit various diseases, be deposited on food before it is ingested: gastroenteritis, dysentery, intestinal worms, salmonella, etc.
In food storage warehouses, as well as in businesses, flies can contaminate production, causing significant economic damage.

We tend to use wasp traps only when the ripe fruit is on the trees: it is not enough.
In fact, vespas and hornets are greedy for figs, apples, pears and other sugars that our orchard offers, but what we do not know is that the use of wasps traps is only possible when the fruit is ripe.
It is certainly useful to catch hornets who eat the fruits of our work, but for them the fruit is just as greedy as the bait of our trap and we risk reaping just as ruined fruits, despite the traps full of insects.
