• Place the sieve into the funnel;
• Attach the collection container to the bottom part of the funnel, by securing the elastic to the cut-outs on the sides of the funnel;
• Join the sails to the upper part of the funnel;
• Attach the top part (lid) the trap;
• Using gloves, take out the pheromone from its foil and attach it to the opening in the trap (wash your hands before and after handling pheromone lures).
• Install the trap on the ground, necessarily in order, fixing its position with the help of nails present in the set, in order to prevent its overturning due to strong winds, etc. 
• Once the trap is full of pests or there is the need to change the lure, take down the trap to be serviced and re-lured.

Positioning

Depending on the type of culture, the following installation methods are recommended:
Orchards - in this type of land it's recommended to install the trap on the ground, necessarily in order, fixing its position with the help of nails present in the set, in order to prevent its overturning due to strong winds, etc. 
Flower Field - for this type of terrain, the most effective way is to mount the screens on a stand so that the pheromone dispenser is above the plants. 

Positioning Density

For maximum efficiency, it's recommended to install the product at a distance of 20 meters between traps, over the entire area of the field, calculating 25 traps per 1 hectare.

Suitable Items

Epicometis (tropinota) hirta lures

Epicometis (tropinota) hirta lure is a component of an insect trapping device that uses pheromones to lure Blossom feeder into a trap.

The lure, in the form of the cellulose dispenser, containing Epicometis (tropinota) hirta pheromone, must be placed in a pheromone trap to be fully functional (traps can be bought separately or in kits with lures).

Using such pheromone lures is an economic, environmentally sound approach to either monitor or mass-trap these pests.

The lures in the traps must be replaced every 8 - 10 weeks to keep attraction rates high. Shelf life - up to 2 year (optimum conditions).
