Fruit Fly Bait 150ml – Eco-Naturalure
Fruit Fly Bait 150ml – Eco-Naturalure is the first fruit fly control to combine a unique protein-based fruit fly attractant and a highly effective BFA registered insecticide.
It controls both Queensland and Mediterranean fruit flies.
It combines specific food-based attractants, which target only fruit flies, and a bacteria-derived insecticide called spinosad.
Only very small amounts are needed to control fruit flies in your garden or orchard.
It will be attractive to fruit fly for up to 7 days.
How it works:
Fruit Fly Bait 150ml – Eco-Naturalure contains specific food attractants and a natural insecticide (spinosad). Fruit flies are attracted to the food source, where they land and begin eating. Once ingested the insecticide disrupts their nervous system, resulting in rapid fly death.
The food attractants in eco-naturalure are extremely good at attracting fruit fly.
Target Juvenile Females: Targeting female fruit fly will help minimize fruit lost to maggots (fruit fly larvae).
Early application is the most effective way to ensure females are killed before they have a chance to mate and lay their eggs in fruit.
Reducing the population of fruit fly early in the season will result in less damaged fruit.
Apply from flower drop.
- Registered organic (BFA).
- No withholding period.
- Easy to use.
- Safe for beneficial insects and animals.
How to use:
As fruit fly are most commonly found on or around plant foliage and branches, it should be sprayed either directly onto foliage and branches or on a board and placed amongst foliage.
We DO NOT recommend spraying metal fences or very absorbant wood as the droplets will dry out too quickly.
Ideal board materials will not allow the product to dry out run off or be absorbed.
Spray should be kept off the ground. Apply at mid-height or close to where fruit is hanging.
When applying ensure spray is adequately mixed with water. DO NOT apply undiluted.
Guide for application:
Small Areas/Individual Plants – Apply as a spot spray every 7 days (re-apply after rain). Spots can be sprayed onto foliage or hard surfaces (eg fences). Fruit does not need to be sprayed.
Foliar application – 10ml of our fruit fly bait to 60ml of water
Branch/Trunk/Board – 10ml of our fruit fly bait to 15ml of water
Set spray nozzle so that droplets form on foliage/branches or board. DO NOT apply as a mist.
Each spot should be 1 sq metre and consist of 7ml of our fruit fly bait to 43ml of water. Set spray nozzle to coarse droplet size.
Two 1 sq metre spots (spaced apart) will protect 100 sq metre.
Larger Areas – 1litre of our fruit fly bait will treat 1 ha (150spots/ha).
Note: Some fruit (including mangoes and pears) can be superficially blemished by the spray. To avoid this we recommend only spraying foliage or hard surfaces, not the fruit itself. If spraying foliage, rotate the positioning of the spot so that the same leaves are not sprayed each time. This will prevent a buildup of sooty mould which can sometimes occur.
