WitaTrap® Complete Plum Fruit Moth Trap Set

Biological attractant trap (pheromone trap) for the management of pest infestation of your cultivars.

One trap set consisting of: 
- 1 trap body (WitaTrap® Delta Super Trap),
- 2 adhesive bases (separately packaged!),
- 2 pheromone capsules (separately packaged!),
- 1 suspension wire for mounting
- detailed instructions for use


Pest: plum fruit moth
Scientific name: Grapholita funebrana
Infests: Plums, damsons and mirabelles

Main symptoms of infestation:   

  • Larvae bore into fruits
  • There is frequently a drop of gum-like substance at the entrance to bore holes
  • The fruit flesh around the stone is destroye
  •  Fruits ripen prematurely and drop from trees

Main flight periods of the first generation adults: May and June (usually in the evening)
Main flight periods of the second generation adults: July to August (usually in the evening)

Assemble traps and suspend them from a branch on the upper third of tree crowns.
Experience shows that the ripening process begins first on the south side of trees, in the upper third of the crown. It is thus advisable to attach the traps to the external, sunny side of trees before the adults take flight. The number of traps required depends on the size of each tree (2 - 10 traps may be needed). Make sure the external adhesive surfaces are kept free of contact with branches and leaves.

Each trap should be checked at regular intervals of 2 - 3 days. Each time a trap is checked, the insects sticking to the adhesive surfaces should be removed using a suitable tool (e.g. twig or wooden scraper) to ensure that the full glue surface is revealed. If surfaces become very soiled, replace the trap or spray with a liquid glue, such as Soveurode special glue.
Replace the attractant (pheromone) and whole traps if necessary every 4 - 6 weeks.

*Traps should be put in place before the flight phase of the adults.

For more information on the insect pest and application, see the enclosed product description.
