How it works

How it works

Mode of action

The Moskisan trap needs to be used in combination with Pherodis lure dispensers. The dispensers release a species-specific lure which attracts  the male fruit flies into the trap. Once in the trap they cannot escape and are easy to detect, count and identify. Trapping males also aids in reducing the number of eggs laid by famles as they fail to mate.
