Proper use of Pheromone Traps:
The pheromone trap is designed to monitor and reduce pest numbers. The trap should be placed in the crown of the cherry tree and sour cherry tree prior to the first flight of the pest insects. Prior to the first flight of the flies the traps must be checked on a daily basis, and after the first flies have been captured, the traps must be checked every 5-7 days. Pheromone dispensers and adhesive tapes can be replaced as needed. Protective measures are based on the results of the monitoring of population density of pest insects.
For mass capture and sterilization of males, it is recommended to have at least 20 traps per hectare. In case of a large number of pest insects use at least 30 traps per 1 ha.
