Red Palm Weevil Lure (Rhynchophorus ferruginous) is a pheromone insect lure for attracting target insects. This pheromone lure is manufactured with high purity pheromones according to recommendations from the research community and are formulated to meet, or exceed industry standards. The pheromone lures are non-toxic where each lure has a species-specific pheromone, a scent that female insects produce to attract males. These pheromones are duplicated in the laboratory in a concentrated time-release form.

Bactrocera Cucurbitae Pheromone Trap
Melon Fruitfly is the most damaging pest of cucurbits and considered as an important obstacle for economic production of Cucumber , Bottle gourd, Bitter gourd, Sweet gourd, Snake gourd, Ridge gourd, Pointed gourd , Sponge gourd, Pumpkins ,Mask melon, Watermelon.
Adult fruit flies prefer young, green, and tender fruits for egg laying. The females lay the eggs 2 to 4 mm deep in the fruit pulp, and the maggots feed inside the developing fruits. The fruits attacked in early stages fail to develop properly, and drop or rot on the plant leading to crop loss. Since, the maggots damage the fruits internally; it is difficult to control this pest with insecticides. One female may lay over 1000 eggs during her life. Depending on the environmental conditions and susceptibility of the crop species, the extent of losses varies between 30 to 100%
Due to its nature of infestation, it is very difficult to control the pest. The increasing use of synthetic insecticides has led to a number of problems such as development of resistance to insecticides in some insect pests, high insecticide residues in market produce, ecological imbalance and danger to health of the pesticide applicator.
Pink Bollworm Pheromone Trap
Pink bollworm is a major pest of cotton crop. Insect is highly adaptable to different climatic conditions and larvae hide over unfavorable cottonseed in which they are well protected and remain alive for many months. Survival of the pest from one season to another is entirely through hibernating larvae in seeds, soils and plant debris. Incidence of P. gossypiella during the season commences from the moth emerging from the over wintering larvae through the summer season. This is the only pest, which peaks at harvest.
In the younger crop larvae bore into tender squares and feed within resulting into drying of the terminal shoots. Later flower buds and bolls are attacked. Infested flower buds fail to open up completely due to webbing by the larva, giving the appearance of a typical rosette bloom. Larvae damage the bolls by tunneling into them, destroying the pulp and lint. Infested bolls open prematurely permitting fungal infection.
Funnel trap is recommended for this pest.
CHANGE OF LURES AND TRAP SERVICING:
Lures should be changed every 4 weeks. The Funnel traps should be emptied weekly to avoid the trap filling and repellency from putrefaction of the insects caught.
Fruit Fly Pheromone Lure
The best reason to use pheromone lures and traps is to monitor and control fruit fly pest population trends in Mango, Guava , Sapota, Citrus, Banana, Papaya which prefers young, green, and tender fruits for egg laying. The females lay the eggs 2 to 4 mm deep in the fruit pulp, and the maggots feed inside the developing fruits. The fruits attacked in early stages fail to develop properly, and drop or rot on the plant leading to crop loss. Since, the maggots damage the fruits internally; it is difficult to control this pest with insecticides. One female may lay over 1000 eggs during her life.
Rhynchophorus Ferrugineus Pheromone Trap
Red Palm Weevil is widely considered to be the most damaging insect pest of palms in the world. In young plantations crown, trunk and bole are the natural sites of damage. In older plantations only crowns are infested. Many a time the insect completes several generations inside the crown or trunk feeding on the inner tissues until the trunk or crown becomes hollow and tree gets killed. After the death of the palm adult weevils come out and seek fresh trees to attack. The legless larvae are yellowish, stout and make galleries inside the tree for about 2-4 months. The adult weevils live for 3-4 months. The females are known to be attracted strongly to the fermenting sap oozing out of wounds in the trunk or the leaf bases.
The pheromone employed is an aggregation pheromone produced by males that will attract both sexes, although a higher ratio of females is normally captured than males. Insecticide should be placed in these traps to kill trapped weevils. Baiting traps with attractants such as dates or sugarcane will result in a significantly higher incidence of capture. It is a biological control, Ecologically responsible and essential to reduce Chemical Residues in the fruit. It is easy to use and safe to handle.
