THIS PRODUCT HAS A LONGER DELIVERY, ASK FOR THE CONDITIONS
The codling moth in apple and pear can fight with the delta trap combined with the pheromone capsule Cydia pomonella. The price includes a delta trap, and the first long-live pheromone capsule.
In the apples and pear trees of the caterpillar of the codling moth can damage the fruits by corridors herein, to feed into the core. The entire harvest can be destroyed in this way.
The adult codling moth, Cydia pomonella, is about 9 mm long, gray in color with a golden spot on the wing tip. They fly at twilight at temperatures higher than 13 ° C. Egg laying occurs from mid-May to late August from 15 ° C. The caterpillars are cream to pink in color, with a dark brown head. Several fruits are affected by one track. A diseased fruit is shriveled and will fall off prematurely.
In the fight against the codling moth, we use a pheromone. Pheromones are signaling molecules that are exchanged between individuals of the same species and affecting their behavior. There exists a wide range of types of pheromone. For example, there are e.g. Sex pheromones butterfly males over long distances to lure in females. This quality can use to lure insect pests in the fall. Pheromones are very species-specific. The duration of the pheromone depends on the composition, amount, concentration and climate.
There are various types of pheromone traps. In the fight against the codling moth, we use a delta trap. The delta trap is made up of a bottom of non-drying adhesive, surmounted by a roof made of durable, water-resistant material. there is a hook with which the trap can be suspended in the middle of the cam. Central under the roof and above the adhesive bottom is the capsule, which releases the pheromone, hung. The males, attracted by the female sex pheromone, capture bone and arrive at the adhesive plate justified. They can not fertilize the females, which in turn can not sell more eggs and produce larvae. The trap can be used for signaling and then moving on to the spraying of a biological pesticide, but can also be used as a pesticide. The first years are you going to fix damage but still hang out after a few years, the loss significantly reduces then to be reduced to zero.
The trap is hung late April or early May. One trap to protect meets for five trees. The pheromone capsule is 16 weeks active and thus also covers a possible second flight, which may occur at the store apples in August. Later than early May, it is useful to hang the fruitmotval. Certainly the first year: the more you can capture the fruitmotpopulatie better start for the subsequent year. You should bear in mind that you pheromone successive years must play to catch your population fruit moths away. Over the years you therefore always receive less put apples and pears.
