The results are clear-cut:
- Droso trap with the new Dros’Attract formulation started catching the first Drosophila suzukii well before other attractants. This makes it an excellent attractant for monitoring purposes.
- The new formulation caught on average 3.3 times more Drosophila suzukii than ACV (see graph below), with peaks where catch levels exceeded those of the standard attractant by up to a factor 10!
For optimal results, Biobest recommends to put 200 ml Dros’Attract per Droso trap and add a sugar cube of 4-5 g. Furthermore, it is recommended that the attractant be renewed every 15 days. The new formulation is supplied in a practical 5L bag-in-box and is totally safe for users. Thanks to the tap you can easily fill the Droso trap with Dros’Attract and renew it.
