PRESENTATION: unique pheromone vapor diffuser. In normal weather conditions, the diffuser duration is 60 days, and can be reduced in adverse conditions such as high temperatures and / or intense winds.
This mixture has been described as the aggregation pheromone of I. acuminatus.
APPLICATION: The diffuser should be placed inside a Theysohn trap attached to the top of the device. · The traps must be placed on a suitable support at a height of 1.5-2 m. · It is recommended to put some monitoring traps in forest clearings (3 to 4) close to sensitive areas or damaged in the previous year. · These traps will be placed linearly at a distance of 500 m. Traps should not be placed on the side or under the pines. · The traps must be placed before the adults emerge (April or May depending on the area). It is recommended to check the traps regularly to determine the population level in the area. · In those areas where the captured population is high, it is recommended to apply massive trapping, increasing the number of traps. In this case, the distance between traps can be reduced to 100 m. Given the lifetime of the diffuser, it is recommended to put a new diffuser every 60 days.
