Wild May con­trols fruit fly

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - FRUIT FLY -

WILD May has de­vel­oped a pes­ti­cide free fruit fly con­trol sys­tem, suit­able for use on cer­ti­fied or­ganic farms.

Not only is the spray cost ef­fec­tive, it also aims to re­duce – or elim­i­nate – the need for pes­ti­cide con­trol, pro­mot­ing not only health­ier fruit and veg­eta­bles but also cre­at­ing a more user-friendly end prod­uct.

Wild May works by leav­ing the traps in place all year, with each new gen­er­a­tion of ju­ve­nile fruit flies at­tracted to the lure – and then erad­i­cated – in most cases be­fore they are sex­u­ally ma­ture.

The fe­male needs to mate be­fore they sting pro­duce, and if there are no males avail­able they will leave the area in search of male fruit flies.

Wild May is specif­i­cally for the Queens­land male fruit fly, with no harm caused to ben­e­fi­cial in­sects.

Wild May At­trac­tant is avail­able in 20 litre, five litre and one litre con­tain­ers from your near­est dis­trib­u­tor.

Traps are also avail­able for pur­chase, and re­search shows that a min­i­mum of four traps per hectare gives the best re­sults.
