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 placed in June, within the flicker period of each species, with 2/3 traps per hectare. For plots larger than one hectare, calculate 3 traps for the first one, then 1 trap for each additional hectare. Check the traps weekly or in shorter shift if necessary. WING to catch Bactrocera oleae should be primed with pheromone for the males and ammonia for the females. The caps on the end of the pheromone dispenser should not be opened and should be inserted into one of the two openenings on the triangular roof of the trap. The vials of ammonia attractant should be opened and the cap inserted into one of the two openings on the triangular roof. Do not remove the discs in the vial. The vial will remain hanging under the roof. Pheromone dispenser: lasts 4 weeks. Ammonia attractant: lasts 4 weeks bua may decrease with rain or high humidity (can be seen when the product is running out). For mass-trapping install no less than 15/20 traps per hectare.
