How it works

How it works

Mode of action

The Picusan trap needs to be used in combination with species-specific pheromone and/or kairomone. The dispensers release a species-specific pheromone/kairomone which lures the male and female weevils into the trap. Once in the trap, they cannot escape and are easy to detect, count and identify. This effectively reduces the reproductive potential of the population.
