This product produces emissions of volatile compounds, which have a high attractiveness to adult fruit flies, especially females.
It is a highly effective liquid food based trapping system to assist in managing fruit fly populations.

It is applied inside the trap (fly trap or bottles with holes) to facilitate the release of volatile components and trap the flies.
