WING is a chromotropic glue trap, the yellow colour attracts the target and is particularly effective against Diptera tripetidae. It is valued for both monitoring and mass-trapping. It’s characterized by a star-shaped section that always allows an optimum exposure to light and facilitates handling without soiling the glue. It is used on different insect species, depending on the attraction system with which is triggered:

  • Parapheromone Activation (trimedlure): Mediterranean Fruit Fly.
  • Activation with pheromone and food (or ammonia) attractant: Olive Fly.
  • Activation with food (or ammonia) attractant: Cherry Fly, Nut Fly, Capers Fly.

Usage tips

Traps should be set in June, within the flicker period of each species, with 2/3 per hectare. For plots larger than 1 hectare, calculate 3 traps for the first one, then 1 trap for each additional hectare. Chek traps weekley or in shorter shifts if necessary. WING for mediterranean fruit fly should be primed with “trimedlure” attractant. The caps on the end of the dispenser should not be opened and should be inserted into one of the two openings on the triangular top of the trap. Dispenser: lasts 4 weeks. For mass-trapping install no less than 15/20 traps per hectare.
