Wet trapping:
Trapping systems with catch liquids have proven to be most effective when massive amounts of bark beetles have to be caught. These methods require the trap-tub to be filled with water and AntiSmell Trap Salt to achieve constantly high catch results. The following tips will allow you to increase catch numbers and save time and labour:

  • No messenger substances: Bark beetles caught die very quickly in the water-saltsolution in the trap and, therefore, are no longer able to release messenger substances which could deter other beetles from approaching the trap. This ensures constantly high catch numbers and reduces the danger of an infestation of standing trees considerably.
  • No smell of decaying beetles: Conventional trap systems do not suppress the smell of decaying beetles and, thus, the pheromones cannot have the desired attracting effect. This makes it necessary to check and empty dry trapping systems on ma weekly basis. When trapping systems with liquids are used (i.e. wet trapping), the water-salt-solution neutralises the smell of the decaying beetles and, thus, the attracting effect of the pheromones remains unaffected. As a consequence, catch rates constantly remain at a high level and no more than 2 to 5 trap checks per season, depending on flight intensity and flight duration, are necessary.
  • Catch liquid concentration: A specially designed gutter featured in the MultiWit Bark Beetle Trap-Tub leads rainwater out of the trap so that the catch liquid keeps its effective concentration. When too much water enters the trap, an additional water drain in the middle of the tub draws off the excess water
  • colour: transparent, allows easy trap checks to determine your catch success


Dry trapping:
Trapping systems without catch liquids are ideally suitable for monitoring bark beetle populations in their main flight periods. The transparent trap-tub facilitates weekly checks of traps and catch success, and the beetles caught can be easily counted. When the trap-tub is used for dry trapping, plug caps are removed from the drains of the MultiWit Bark Beetle Trap-Tub so that water can run off (i.e. conventional system). Depending on your needs, you can switch between monitoring (dry trapping) and mass trapping (wet trapping) during the flight period.
