We offer a range of liquid attractants either for use in suitable bucket or bag type traps or for custom lure production. All our liquid formulations are available in 1, 5, 25 and 210 litre containers. If you require one of our liquids in a different sized container please contact us.
Pure terpinyl acetate is the most suitable attractant to use for the mango fruit fly, Ceratitis cosyra, as the para-pheromone products used for other Ceratitis species are ineffective for this species. Terpiny acetate, when mixed with cane sugar and water, acts as an effective kairomone attractant for the oriental fruit moth and also Grapholita molesta.
Protein hydroslyate can be used for monitoring, mass trapping and lure and kill spray formulations. It is attractive to a wide range of fruit fly species including Ceratitis capitata and Bactrocera oleae. The ammonia emanating from hydrosylated protein is attractive to female flies which require proteinaceous resources for egg maturation. Both sexes of fruit fly pests can therefore be trapped when this product is used in conjunction with a parapheromone lure.
Dorsalure-ME & Methyl Eugenol
Methyl eugenol is a para-pheromone attractant for a number of fruit fly pests, including Bactrocera dorsalis and Bactrocera zonata. We offer methyl eugenol in two forms: Dorsalure-ME and pure methyl eugenol. Dorsalure-ME is a proprietary formulation that contains an extender system, to give an extended field life.
Capilure and Trimedlure
Trimedlure is a para-pheromone attractant, particularly effective at luring male flies from the species Ceratitis capitata and . We offer trimedlure in two forms: in its pure form and as Capilure. Capilure is our own proprietary formulation containing an extender system which gives a proven extended field life.
Cuelure-H and Cue-lure
Cue-lure is another para-pheromone product that we are able to offer. Cue-lure is attractive to a number of Bactrocera fruit fly species and is the most suitable choice for the melon fly Bactrocera cucurbitae. We offer Cue-lure in two forms; as a pure product and as Cuelure-H. Cuelure-H contains a proprietary mix of extenders that increases the field life of the active ingredient.
