The traps are hardwearing and can be used for several seasons. It composed by four plastic pieces: the bottom transparent container, upper yellow part with a small entrance for insects, upper green cover and pheromone basket. Basket is attachable on upper cover. In addition to these, there is a suspension rope. Parts are used by assembling from clips. 

The trap is designed for multi-purpose; it can be used as a McPhail trap by turning it upside down and green cover is removed.

The standard color combination is white, yellow and green.

The purpose of use

It is used in conjunction with the pheromone to capture flying insects for monitoring and mass trapping.

Monitoring: With traps, the first adult emergence of target pests can be detected. Accordingly, the pest control time is determined.

Mass trapping: As soon as the first adult captured in monitoring trap, the traps are hung intensively at regular intervals. In this way, a large number of adult insects are caught. Thus reducing the caused damages on the crop.

To be considered for use of traps for mass trapping are as follows:

- The distance between the traps

- Number of traps required per unit area

- The replaced interval of the pheromone capsules in the traps depends on indicative diffusion of lure

The method of use

Funnel trap uses: orchards, field, warehouses.

Suitable for use in dusty and indoor/outdoor areas.

The trap’s dome-shaped transparent container makes it easier to see the insect for monitoring.

Simple to install and maintain.

Insects enter the trap through a hole in the upper yellow part in response to the pheromone and captured insects fall in to the transparent container.

Available in a variety of colors to meet specific needs.

Yellow and green: For many types of moths (Lepidoptera) and flying insects in open field cultivation.

All green: Catches fewer beneficial insect and bees. 

In fruit orchard: Hang in a tree canopy at a height of 1.5-2.0 m. Ensure trap entrances remains unobstructed by leaves and branches.

Target pests

Moth (Lepidoptera) and flying insects, such as beet armyworm (Spodoptera exigua), codling moth (Cydia pomonella) and mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis capitata).
