Good detection in terms of insect pests’ flight times.
- A precise indication of the insects’ activity periods in a given agronomic situation, working from the capture date for the first males caught in the trap.
- Determination of the optimal treatment period using insecticides, thereby increasing the effectiveness of treatments.
- Treatment savings.
- A means of control providing high environmental performance.
