Crosstrap® mini wet collector
The CROSSTRAP® Mini trap with wet collector is a state-of-the-art forest trap developed in an R&D project (University of Murcia - ECONEX) with the objective of developing traps and attractants for forest insect pests.
OMDF registration number: 153/2013
The sheets, the funnel and the collector are treated with a sliding product that considerably increases the captures, also preventing them from escaping.
The collector has an approximate capacity of 2 liters and has a drain on the top that prevents it from filling with rainwater. It measures 12.5 cm in diameter by 19 cm in height and is equipped with a sliding cover that prevents catches from escaping.
Wet catches allow accurate identification of catches. For this, it is recommended to fill the collector with 10 ml of propylene glycol diluted to 10 or 20%, or if necessary, use car antifreeze. This liquid serves both to kill the catches as a preservative, provided that it is not diluted too much with rain, in which case it should be replaced.
The deployed trap measures 33 cm in diameter by 100 cm in height. Once folded, it occupies 30 cm in diameter and 40 cm high. The latest experiences have shown that this trap is more effective in capturing Tomicus spp and other scolitids.
The trap is activated by placing the attractants hung in the holes of which one of the sheets consists. The trap can be operational for up to 7 years, due to its constitution and high strength components.
PLACEMENT AND HANDLING: The traps must be installed hung by a rope, either between two trees, or a branch, always taking care that the horizontal trap does not contact the shaft of the support tree. This ensures that the trap does not hit and does not break, ensuring that insects are able to distinguish it from the shaft, and that they go to the trap, and not the tree.
The trap is activated by placing the attractant diffusers hung in the holes of one of the sheets by means of the fastening clips provided.
The installation height of the trap is not relevant, being sufficient that the ECONEX CROSSTRAP® SUPPORT (Code: TA147) collector does not touch the ground or any other element. The metal support designed for such use can also be used for installation.
