Product Description

CHARACTERISTICS AND INSTRUCTIONS:

YATLORF is an efficient trap for the monitoring of wireworms (Agriotes brevis, A. sordidus, A. litigiosus, A. ustulatus). Depending on the season and on the target insect, the traps should be activated with one or more specific pheromones. The trap is equipped with particular compartments for pheromones.
At the beginning of the season (3rd week of March), place the trap with A. brevis pheromone (which has to be located under the little wings of the trap device).
Around 10th-15th April, remove from the trap the insects that have been caught and place the A. sordidus pheromone into the specific compartment, situated in the lower part of the transparent little wings.
After one month, empty and clean the trap, replacing the A. sordidus pheromone into the specific compartment, situated in the lower part of the transparent little wings; at the same time, place the A. litigiosus pheromone in the upper compartment of the transparent little wings. On 10th June, remove the insects from the trap, replace the A. litigiosus pheromone, which in this case has to be located in the lower part of the trap (in place of A. brevis pheromone). Put the A. ustulatus pheromone into the upper compartment. On 10th July, empty the trap and replace the A. ustulatus pheromone into the upper compartment.
On 10th August, empty the traps for the last time (they will be reused the following year).
Place at least 3 traps up to 10 hectares and then 3 traps every 10 hectares. They should be placed in line or in correspondence of the vertices of a triangle with about 50 m sides.
The trap must be placed in a stable position on the ground, ensuring that the lower edge is covered by 1-2 cm of soil. Use an indicator pole to find the trap when the crop grows.
Each packaging contains: a complete trap, 2 A. sordidus pheromones and 2 A. litigiosus pheromones. Also available: A. brevis pheromones and A. ustulatus pheromones.
