The Bruchid Beetle, also known as the Broad-Bean Weevil (Bruchus rufimanus), is a common pest found within bean crops.
The Bruchid Beetle Trap works via use of an effective species-specific attractant lure. This attractant entices male and female Bruchid Beetles into the trap. Once the pests are within the trap they cannot escape.
The traps are effective for monitoring purposes as well as effective pest control, as the beetles are easy to detect, count and identify once caught within the trap.
If applying to fields, place one trap on the north edge of the field, and one trap to the south edge.
If applying to smaller crop, place the trap wherever infestations have been identified and wherever there is crop to protect.
1. First, place the funnel onto the green bucket.
2. Secondly, place the opened attractant lure in the transparent top of the trap.
3. Next, fix the transparent top to the funnel with a twist action lining up the slots.
4. The trap can be placed on the ground or preferably on a raised 1 metre stick.
Use the Bruchid Trap when flight of adult beetles is expected from the end of March during vegetative growth.
We advise that you use at least two traps per field. One trap will be sufficient for smaller areas.
The trap can be used for years and replacement lures can be purchased for additional coverage. The lures are designed to last an entire Bruchid Beetle flying season (roughly 6 weeks).
