Bactrocera Conetrap Pack

The Bactrocera Conetrap trapis a top of the range system for the mass trapping of Bactrocera Oleae.


Important advantages:

  • Reduces or eliminates treatments using insecticide, reducing the level of residues on fruit.
  • Better selectivity than insecticides, thus preserving fauna beneficial to crops.
  • High on site persistence as a result of the capacity of the Bactrocera Conetrap attractant
  • Reduces placement costs (removing from box and hanging). Furthermore, due to its persistence, it does not require any form of maintenance throughout the year.
  • No handling of attractant and insecticide required.
  • Very efficient for continuously cultivated olive crops.
  • Trapping during periods of the year when no chemical treatments are performed, contributing to a reduction in the level of the general population.

Components and supply:

The Bactrocera Conetrap pack is sold in boxes of 20 pre-assembled units, containing:

Probodelt also provides a service for mass trapping with the Bactrocera Conetrap pack: placement of the traps on site at the appropriate time and place, and in the most suitable density.

Use and placement:

  • For the placement of the Bactrocera Conetrap, it is recommended to use a variable trap density depending on the continuous surface area of the crop where the system is to be used.
    • 2-10 ha ….35-50 traps/ha. ..
    • 10-200 ha…. 20-35 traps/ha.
    • >200 ha……10-20 traps/ha.
  • Place the the pack on site during June or July.
  • Hang on olive tree at a medium height on the southeast side, where there are plenty of leaves so that the trap can be partially hidden among them.
  • Fasten the fly trap cover when it has been passed over the branch.
  • Monitor the flight of the fly at some of the traps to evaluate whether further treatment will be required in September and October.
  • Leave the fly traps on site until the following year. Although trapping levels may be lower than the previous year, the performance does not drop completely.
  • The fly trap is sold in boxes of 50 units
  • In the case of any queries, contact the technicians at PROBODELT.
