Ecological Attractant CeraTrap® to Monitor and Control Fruit Flies

December 2023
Scientific articles | Cera-Trap®

CeraTrap®, an innovative attractant marketed for more than 15 years as a unique alternative for monitoring and surveillance in pest management programs was compared for its efficacy (up to 94%), economy (reprimed 1.5 to 2 months), and ecological management with various attractants to capture or eliminate fruit flies in different crops in the field, with special attraction on females. This review includes controversial aspects explained by researchers who agree on usefulness of the attractan...

Insights into the Use of a Mass Trapping Strategy to Control Fruit Fly Populations (Diptera: Tephritidae) in Guatemala: A Study Case in a Citrus Growing-Area

June 2023
Scientific articles | Cera-Trap®

Mass trapping is a control method for fruit fly pests (Diptera: Tephritidae) in fruit-growing areas. This study aimed at providing information on the use of mass trapping using Cera Trap® to control fruit fly pests in a citrus-growing area in Guatemala. We analyzed the “flies per number of traps × exposure d” index and sex ratios of fly populations based on 3 trapping types: a mass trapping network, a monitoring trap in the center of a plot involving mass trapping, and another trap ins...

Lettuce Soil Microbiome Modulated by an L-α-Amino Acid-Based Biostimulant

January 2023
Bioestimulantes | Scientific articles

Maintenance of soil health is of foremost importance to sustain and increase crop productivity, while meeting the demand of a rising global population. Soil microbiome is gaining increasing attention as a modulator of soil health. Microbial communities confer traits to the soil as a living organism, which functions holistically and conforms part of the plant holobiont, reassembling the human-gut axis. Novel strategies in biostimulant development advocate for modulation of the native soil mic...

Biostimulants: a tool to improve the aromatic composition of grapes

January 2023
Bioestimulantes | Scientific articles | Terra-Sorb®

The compounds from the groups of terpenes, C13 norisoprenoids and benzene compounds are the main responsible for the aroma of the grapes, generally contributing floral and fruity notes to them. The foliar application in the vineyard of biostimulants is a proposed tool to increase the quality of the grapes.

Thus, in this work, a foliar application has been carried out on Tempranillo Blanco vines to increase its volatile composition, since, despite being a new variety with high oenolog...

Comparison of attractants for Anastrepha obliqua (Diptera: Tephritidae) in Mexico: is there a better attractant than CeraTrap®?

December 2022
Scientific articles | Cera-Trap®

Fruit fly monitoring using effective attractants is a key tool in the integration of pest control strategies.

The present study compared the capture efficacy of Anastrepha obliqua using six attractants that are commercially available in Mexico. In three field experiments in mango var. manila orchards, CeraTrap®, an attractant comprising enzymatically-hydrolyzed animal proteins, was significantly more effective than chemically-hydrolyzed proteins mixed with borax (Captor 300...
