CeraTrap: the strategy for biorational pest control of fruit fly in mango cultivation

That was the title of the lecture and poster presented by the Bioiberica delegation during the 10th International Mango symposium, held on June 3-7 in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

The West Indian Fruit fly (Anastrepha obliqua) is one of the major phytosanitary problems affecting mango cultivation. Export-oriented areas are experiencing increasing difficulties to use chemical pesticides due to the problem with chemical residues. In recent times, however, the mass trapping or mass capture technology is becoming an alternative to chemical pest control. Among them, CeraTrap ®is one of the leading solutions, because of its high efficacy and persistence.

The poster and the lecture presented by Bioiberica showed the positive results obtained by Cera Trap® in several different countries. These results showed its efficacy, and raised great interest among the attendants.

The attendants included many producers, agricultural technicians and scientists coming from more than 30 countries (20 of them came from Spain) specializing in mango cultivation.

Bioiberica’s delegation, along with our distributors in the area, attended also the Bani Mango fair. There, they presented Bioiberica’s solutions for mango cultivation that raised great interest among fairgoers.
