Treat fruit fly with Cera traps and bait

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - FRUIT FLY -

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.
