Dakpot Fruit Fly Lure & Insecticide Trap

These are used for the monitoring of Queensland Fruit Fly (Bactrocera Tryoni), Northern Territory Fruit Fly, Bactrocera Neohumeralis.

Trap contains a mix of a sex attractant and an insecticide. Only the male flies are attracted, they feed on the mixture, fall to the bottom of the pot and die. It is recommended that the pots be emptied daily and the flies counted, this allows early detection of an infestation and therefore early intervention.

For control of fruit fly these pots should be used in conjunction with the Dakpot Lure or other cover sprays or splash sprays as recommended by your state agricultural authority.

Each lure will last a season, replace the lure each spring. Traps should be left out all year to reduce the number of males. The manufacturers recommend 2 pots for an average residential block

Product Dimensions: 85mm L x 85mm W x 115mm H.

More Information:

Male Queensland Fruit Fly are attracted to the trap by an odour associated with mating, sometimes from some hundreds of metres. On entering the trap they feed on a para-pheromone and an insecticide and fall to the bottom of the canister where they can be counted.  Regular (preferably daily) inspection is recommended in order to detect and so check an infestation before significant damage can occur. Normal observation of fruit for stings should still be practised. 
As with all traps that attract only the male fruit fly, Dakpot traps cannot be considered to be adequate as control measures themselves. They should be used in conjunction with cover sprays or splash-baits as required by the various Australian state agricultural authorities.

Directions for use:

Crop: Fruit Trees

Pest: Male Queensland Fruit Fly
