Wild May controls 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.
