Leiodelt is intended for the trapping of truffle beetles (Leiodes cinnamomeus), thus reducing or eliminating damage by leiodes caused by the same adults and their larvae on truffles.
It is composed of:
At the beginning of September we will install the Leiodelt Pack (Trap + Attractant) in the field. Once we detect the first catch we will pierce the aluminium seal of the Leiodelt attractant (without damaging the plastic cap underneath).
If the season before the present one was the first with beetle damage in the plantation, 30 units per hectare shall be placed.
In the case of a plantation that has experienced beetle damage for several years, you should place between 60 and 80 units.
Withdraw the Leiodelt Pack once the truffle harvesting campaign is over.

Leiodes cinnamomeus is a coleopteran of the family Leiodidae.
In contrast, the female does not have a dewclaw and the tibia is straight.
The initial damage they cause to the truffle is a reduction in its weight, devaluing its aromas and commercial category, and they also indirectly influence early ripening and rotting of truffles.
