Diamondback Moth

The moth (Plutella xylostella) is a lepidopteran which causes damage to different plants of the cruciferae group, mainly cabbages, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and broccoli.

Since 2001 Probodelt has been applying mass trapping to control this pest with Funnel trap on different Brussels sprouts fields in the areas of Baix Ebre and Montsià (Tarragona). The results are totally satisfactory.
