When to use Bruchid beetle trap?
Use the Bruchid trap in combination with the species-specific attractant for Bruchid beetle when flight of adult beetles is expected from the end of March during vegetative growth. Traps should be used as an indicator that there is an existing population on your farm/ in your area. Traps are not reliable during the flowering period of field beans and may not be suitable for use in earlier flowering winter beans.
How does the trap work?
Adults are attracted to a plant volatile based on the aroma of bean flowers. The attractant is hung inside the green part of the trap. Adults fly into the trap and up into the white funnel and through the hole at the top. They are then caught in the clear plastic top.
