Fly trap Hemitrap

Within the processes of continuous improvement, Probodelt SL presents a new version of the fly trap Hemitrap®.

HEMITRAP® is the fruit fly trap, specially designed for liquid attractants, that became commercially available in spring 2013.

This new version facilitates handling, with significant improvements for placing the side tubes as well as for the closure of the trap. It is available in two models, one of which is also new 2015:

  • Hemitrap® 2180: with side tubes 8 mm in diameter and a high efficiency for trapping fruit flies of the genera Bactrocera, Ceratitis, Dacus, Anastrepha…
  • Hemitrap® 2180-S: with side tubes 8 mm in diameter that incorporate a small screen at the end of each tube that makes them specially selective for small fruit flies like Drosophila suzukii. In this way the number of beneficial insects trapped is significantly reduced.

For monitoring and control of Drosophila suzukii recommend using the liquid attractant SUZZII.

Hemitrap: comparison with others fruit fly traps.

  • Hemitrap versus Mcphail
  • Hemitrap versus Maxitrap XL

Features:

It consists of:

  • Galvanized wire hanger.
  • Screw cover of transparent plastic material.
  • Hemispherical base yellow-orange, with 3 side windows, made of plastic material.
  • Three sets of seven lateral tubes yellow-orange, with an improved and innovative design, made of plastic material, that achieve very high and selective captures. These pieces are easily assembled to the side windows of the bucket.

This design improves mass trapping (efficacy and preservation of beneficial insects) as well as monitoring (efficacy and ease of counting of flies trapped).

Supply

The fly trap is sold in boxes of 50 units.

Capacity of liquids.

The liquid capacity of the fly trap depends on the custom:

  • For mass trapping: 650 cc. It is the maximum amount of liquid to the lower level of the side windows of the bucket.
  • For monitoring: 320 cc. It is the maximum amount of liquid that can be poured into another container without spilling the liquid by the lateral tubes.

For mass trapping: 650 cc

For monitoring: 320 cc

  • For monitoring D.suzukii, as the usual amount of liquid used are 250 cc, this fly trap allows pouring the liquid with the flies trapped into another container without any difficulty.

Accessories.

  • Vertical support. For horticultural crops, to keep the trap hung anywhere in the plot, a vertical support that can be stuck in the ground is supplied.

Compatible with integrated and ecological production.
