Why should pest monitoring with chromatic traps be implemented.

For the correct monitoring of insects within the crops, we should consider: key pests to monitor: Lepidoptera (butterflies or moths), Coleoptera (beetles), Diptera (flies), Hemiptera (white flies), and Thysanoptera (thrips).

Choose the correct color that attracts the insect: Yellow (white flies and diptera), Blue (thrips), Black (moths and beetles). Number of traps to implement:

We recommend the use of at least 2 chromatic traps of each color per 1000 square meters.

Why should a physical barrier be used for preventing pests from entering the crops.

  1. To reduce applications of chemical insecticides inside the crop.
  2. To avoid physical damages to the crop due to the effect of the pest insect feeding.
  3. To comply with the GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) implementation requirements.
  4. To restrict entry of vectors that may transmit viruses to the crop.

Benefits

  1. Durability in external conditions.
  2. Reduced phytosanitary applications.
  3. Easy implementation within a GAP -Good Agricultural Practices- process.
  4. Physical barrier to prevent harmful insects from entering the crop.
  5. Good tensile strength.
  6. Reduced incidence of pests and insects harmful to the crop.
  7. Improved environmental conditions and pollinator entry.
