1.Pathway Block Technology:
The direction of the fly entry is designed in such a way that there is no way it can escape from the trap. There are three equvi positioned paths / holes for entry and exit of air and flies located at 120 degree angle. The free pathway is been blocked by the lure as it is positioned in such a way (at the top of the container and center of the cap) due to which this pathway block technology provides the following benefits for better performance:
1. The air entering in to the container will hit the lure and is highly concentrated with the pheromone all the time so that entered fly will never tries to go out the trap,
2. The air entered freely will never go out without pheromone,
3. The flies entered directly has to hit the lure block and will fall down.
4. Also for better performance even after the trap box is filled by the flies, and the warmness of the cap will hit the lure so that the pheromone is constantly released.
2.Color Alluring Technology:
Specific yellow color is used for cap; this yellow shade in particular is optimized which is a visually alluring shade for the pests for better attraction.
Ultraviolet light has the simultaneous influence of oxygen on plastic causing photo oxidation - leading to considerably damage un-stabilized thermoplastic resins. Depending on the polymer decrease of optical, mechanical and physical properties leads to loss of surface shine, surface rips, de-chalking, yellowing, discoloration, embrittlement, deterioration of the mechanics, etc.
4.Rain Protection Technology:
The trap container is designed in an Umbrella shape for avoiding the rain water enter into the trap even tilted at 45 degree angle, so that there is no dilution or degradation of the pheromone.
Guarding against rain wash out of pheromone as lure is placed at the top of trap.
Number of traps/acre : 4
