Experience using Suzukii Trap® Max Captures in raspberry (in Huelva, Spain)

The area of Huelva is one of the largest producing areas of different types of berries in the Iberian Peninsula due to its climatic characteristics. In recent years, the spotted-wing fly (Drosophila Suzuki), that mainly attacks soft-skinned red fruits, has been introduced, leading to the need to carry out an exhaustive population monitoring in order to adapt the best pest control strategy.

Test data:
  • Location: Moguer (Huelva, Spain)
  • Cultivation: Raspberry
  • Conditions: autumn 2018  (high ambient humidity)
  • Evaluation: total, male and female catches of Drosophila Suzuki with 3 different attractants during two weeks of catches (November).
 Systems tested for capture:
Vinegar Solution
Suzukii Trap® Max Captures 
European Standard
Capturas Drosophila Suzukii
Suzukii Trap® Max Captures gets higher captures of Drosophila Suzuki compared to vinegar solution and another commercial standard attractant (European Standard).

In addition, Suzukii Trap® Max Captures captured a higher percentage of females, which is the reproductive agent and causes direct damage to the fruit. The capture of females is a good indicator of pest detection, since it is the adult females that can survive all year round and, therefore, are the first to be detected. On the other hand, the greater capture of females can contribute significantly to the interruption of the reproductive cycle of the pest.
