BLUTRAP® ROLL is our blue colored chromotropic roll for mass-trapping thrips. Its’ made entirely of biodegradable paper, resistant to traction but can be easily torn crosswise for easier and quicker application. High quality entomological glue is present on both sides of the roll. It is UV resistant, does not dry out and remains active for at least 4/5 weeks. The edge of the roller is not glues, for easier handling by the operator.

The highly saturated blue colour is particularly suitable to enhance the attractiveness to thrips. In particular, it attracts the Frankliniella Occidentalis (western greenhouse thrip) an insect vector of the tomato virus that causes spotted wilt (TSWV, Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus) Water-repellent, resistant to rain and to foliar application of the most common agropharmaceuticals. It can be used in any type of greenhouse. Due to the large adhesive surface area, use in open fields is not recommended because of the risk of catching other non-target animals such as birds and small mammals. Safe and non-toxic.

Usage tips

Spread BluTrap®Roll in the pre-flowering phase of the crop to mass-trapp thrips. Modulate the quantity to be used according to the pressure and quantity of the insects and the crop to be protected. For example, the roll can be spread along th row of the crop across all the rows, or can be applied alternately. The installation height must correspont with the flower stages and vegetative apexes of the crop or where the leaf apparatus is well developed. Replace the product when there’s about 70% of the surface covered by insects or when the glue loses its adhesive activity. Wherever possible, use greenhouse poles as support for rollers and intensify installation near greenhouses entrances, to bettere intercept incoming thrips.
