Baiting systems are an effective means of controlling Mediterranean fruit fly populations. This product is effective against both male and female fruit fly and will help break the reproduction cycle by killing adult insects.
‘Fruit Fly Control’ contains protein and sugar based bait to attract fruit fly, and an insecticide derived from naturally occurring beneficial soil bacteria, called spinosad. After emerging from her pupal case in the soil, the female seeks a source of protein before mating and laying eggs. When the fly eats the protein and sugar bait, she also ingests the insecticide, preventing her from making it to the reproduction stage.
200ml treats up to 300 trees.
Use in conjunction with trapping and netting systems for better control.
