How it works

How it works

Mode of action

The Bruchid Beetle Trap needs to be used in combination with species-specific Pherodis dispensers. The dispensers release a species-specific lure which attracts the male and female weevils into the trap. Once in the trap, they cannot escape and are easy to detect, count and identify.
