The attractant is released from these holes. Hang on outer limbs by its hook. Discard when outer surface is full of insects and replace with a new one.
Citrus Gall Wasp – Popular citrus trees are prone to attack from citrus gall wasps. The larvae form a gall or bump on the limbs of trees causing reduction in crop yield and branch dieback. Insectrap attracts the citrus gall wasps to its sticky formula and they become permanently trapped, unable to lay eggs that become larvae. Insectrap interrupts their life cycle and helps to reduce their population. Without Insectrap the tree can be infected continuously.
Hang Insectrap - August to February. Hang 2 units for trees up to 2 metres in height and 4 units for trees above 2 metres in height.
Affected areas – Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia.
Fruit Fly – Fruit Flies, including the Mediterranean Fruit Fly attack the fruit on many varieties of fruit trees, damaging the fruit so it’s unsuitable for consumption.
