SWD Summer Traps (pack of 2)

SWD Summer Traps (pack of 2)

SWD Summer Traps (pack of 2) Code: XAG046

£26.95 26.9500 In Stock New

The spotted wing drosophila (SWD) is a new fruit fly affecting soft fruits, grapes, cherries and plums. The female lays eggs under the surface of the skin, which hatch into small white larvae. In the garden, the use of several of these monitoring traps filled with liquid attractant and placed around the perimeter of the fruit plot can help attract the adults away from developing fruits, reducing the likelihood of infestation. The traps can be used from March onwards. Supplied with 2 x 250ml bottles of attractant which is sufficient to fill each trap three times.
