Scientific articles | Cera-Trap®

The effect of four attractants: CeraTrap, hydrolyzed protein, torula tablets and Flyral spread over five acres of guava trees was evaluated. The variables studied were flies per trap per day and the number of infected larvae per kg of guava. The attractant which was statistically better was CeraTrap. Therefore, the application of CeraTrap for preventing fruit flies is recommended in guava fruit in this community.

Economic and Highly Effective Trap–Lure Combination to Monitor the Mexican Fruit Fly (Diptera: Tephritidae) at the Orchard Level

May 2015
Scientific articles | Cera-Trap®

Monitoring population levels of the Mexican fruit fly, Anastrepha ludens (Loew) (Diptera: Tephritidae), at the orchard level prior and during the fruit ripening period can result in significant savings in the costs of managing this pestiferous insect. Unfortunately, to date, no highly effective and economically viable trap is available to growers. To move toward this goal, trap_lure combinations were evaluated in trials performed in citrus orchards in Veracruz, Mexico. CeraTrap, an enzymatic...

Efficacy of new commercial traps and the lure ceratrap® against ANASTREPHA OBLIQUA (DIPTERA: TEPHRITIDAE)

December 2014
Scientific articles | Cera-Trap®

Traps, lures, and trap/lure combinations were tested against the West Indian fruit fly, Anastrephaobliqua Macquart (Diptera: Tephritidae). The study aimed to evaluate the efficiencyof possible trap/lure substitutes for the traditional McPhail glass trap baited withhydrolyzed protein, which is the trap/lure combination approved for monitoring this pestin Mexico. CeraTrap®, an enzymatically hydrolyzed protein, caught as many or more A.obliqua flies as McPhail traps baited with the chemically ...

Evaluation of food attractants for the adult monitoring of fruit fly in South American apple crops.

November 2014
Posters | Cera-Trap®

The objective of the trail was to evaluate the effectiveness of food attractants in the capture of adults of Anastrepha fraterculus on apple trees in Brazil. In all orchards evaluated the total fruit flies captured was greater in the traps baited with CeraTrap®, followed by Torula, BioAnastrepha® and red grape juice. The attractant of CeraTrap® is more effective in the period of pre and fruit harvest.
