pheromone trap trap
A high tech trap to monitor the red palm weevil
Picusan® Trap is a pyramid shaped ground trap that does not need to be buried. Black is an attractive color to red palm weevils (Rhynchophorus ferrugineus). Its ribbed surface makes it easier for the adults to climb up and to eventually fall down inside the trap through a funnel. Picusan® Trap is used together with the specific pheromones for Rhynchophorus ferrugineus. This trap can also be applied for the creation of perimeter barriers.
