When to use the Carrot Fly Trap?
There are normally two generations of Carrot fly a year. The first generation appears
late April/early May and the second towards late July/August (this may differ per country). Carrot Fly traps should be in position just prior to these times and throughout these months. The traps will help to monitor Carrot fly populations and reduce the number of egg laying adults by catching
them on specially coloured sticky traps.
How does Carrot fly trapping system work?
The sticky traps are coated with an insect trapping adhesive on one side. The adhesive makes sure that the pest insects stick to the trap.
