The Insect Science® ready to use F.F. ToolKit™ has been developed to monitor Ceratitis capitata (Mediterranean fruit fly)
, Ceratitis cosyra (Mango fruit fly)
and Ceratitis rosa (Natal fruit fly)
in horticultural crops, Home and Garden, ornamental plants, vines, subtropical crops and nursery plants. Each Toolkit™ contains 1x McPhail Trap
, 1x E.G.O. PheroLure®, 2x insecticide blocks, and 1x pair of gloves.
Each E.G.O. PheroLure® contains female pheromones to attract and monitor fruit fly males in homes and gardens and fruit tree orchards, effectively removing them from the breeding population. They enter through the hole of the inverted funnel base in the McPhail Trap. Once inside, the insects are trapped. Trying to fly towards the light and escape through the transparent top, the insects fall exhausted to the bottom of the inverted funnel, where the gas of the insecticide block kills them. You may use a McPhail Trap sticky lining
to trap the flies.
