Treat fruit fly with Cera traps and bait
FRUIT fly traps and baits have a role in perimeter-protection of tree crops, and mass trapping and management within orchards.
Cera Trap’s protein hydrolysate liquid has proven highly attractive to both female and male fruit fly, with one of the most powerful proteinattractants for fruit flies on the Australian market.
Female flies are especially attracted to the product due to their need for protein for egg-laying.
As demonstrated in Australian trials, the capture ratio of females - responsible for fruit stinging and damage - to males in Cera Traps was 4:1.
Other benefits of Cera Traps included being insecticide-free, non-toxic to bees and beneficial insects, cost- effective, safe for farm workers, the environment and consumers, ready to use and easy to set up with low evaporation rates with 600mLs in each trap lasting 60-120 days and it is quick to refill in seconds in the canopy.
Alternatively, Cera Bait is a lure, highly attractive to females and is designed to be used with an approved registered insecticide.
Cera Bait can be used as either a band spray or spot spray treatment and is suitable for use in ICA28 and ICA24 pre-harvest bait spraying programs for citrus and strawberry.
Cera Bait is a salt free lure formulation that will cause less phytotoxicity to crops after application.
Cera Trap and Cera Bait are nontoxic to bees and beneficial insect populations and are safe for farm workers and the environment.
