Cera Trap®

CeraTrap® is a specific bait for capturing Mediterranean Fruit Fly (Ceratitis capitata).

CeraTrap® is an effective and 100% ecological product for controlling Med fruit fly.

The evaporation of CeraTrap® releases a series of volatile compounds, mostly amines and organic acids which attract the adult flies, especially females. CeraTrap® is applied inside the trap (fly trap or bottles with holes) to facilitate the release of volatile components and trap the flies.

Benefits:

  • 100% ecological solution
  • Leaves no residues on fruits
  • High selectivity
  • Easy to handle
  • Ready to use product

Cera Trap® is certified for use in organic farming CAAE.

It doesn't contain pheromones or insecticidial in its composition or in its mode of use.

Crops:
The main crops affected by Ceratitis capitata are citrus fruits and fruit trees. Of these, the following species in particular:
Citrus fruits: Orange, mandarin, lemon, grapefruit.
Fruit trees: Peach, apricot, medlar, nectarine, cherry, plum, avocado, blueberry, fig, kaki, cherimoya, strawberry, pomegranate, kiwi, mango, apple, pear, quince, pineapple, banana, etc.

Dose:
The density of the fly traps per hectare will depend on the pest pressure, crop surface to be protected and strategy (monitoring, mass traping, perimeter strategy, etc.). For mass trapping the usual number of fly traps to place is between 70 and 120 for adequate pest control. Fly traps should be hung on the south side of the tree, between 1.5 and 2.2 meters high.
