General information

When to use Tutasan?

Use Tutasan for mass trapping of Tuta absoluta inside or outside the greenhouse. Water traps, in combination with other measures, help to realize an effective control of Tuta absoluta.

How does Tutasan work?

Tutasan is a patented trap system with an easy to handle size, equipped with a system to control the water level. Use Tutasan in combination with Pherodis pheromones. The capsule releases the scent of a species-specific sex pheromone. This scent lures adult males of the relevant butterfly/moth species into the trap.
