Way of action

combi-protec® Insect Bait improves as feeding stimulant efficiency and long-term effects of insecticides in management of Spotted Wing Drosophila and other kind of Fruit Flies.

By increased oral absorption of the active ingredient, the target insects are killed very fast.

The risk of SWD egg infestation and development of resistance is reduced.

TARGET PEST

combi-protec acts with suitables insecticides to these target pests

Walnut husk fly

spotted wing drosophila

fruit flies

brown marmorated stink bug

HOW TO USE

combi-protec can be used as “bait & kill” baitspray

or

as spray adjuvant in tank mix with standard spray applications


3 – 10%

of standard insecticide amount is used in baitspray applications. Insecticide rates can be adapted to the spray volume and covered area. In a „bait & kill” strategy, similar effects can be achieved with minimized insecticide use compared to full rate applications.

Flies will feed of bait spray as an attractive protein source and incorporate at the same time the active ingredients of combined insecticides.

combi-protec Insect Bait is a blend of special plant extracts, sugars and co-formulants as feeding stimulants and appetizers.

This means that the more flies can be expected from the environment, the shorter the spray interval should be! This means that on very small areas with high infestation pressure in the vicinity, hardly any effect can be achieved by a treatment! This should be taken into account and therefore baitspray application will work best on area wide spray programs.A combination with mass trapping is strongly discouraged, as this will lure flies into the orchard.Based on current experience, the interval between treatments should not be longer than 7 days!

A uniform distribution of bait droplets is recommended for softfruit. Use air injection, anti drift nozzles.

 

SOFTFRUIT TRIAL RESULTS

Treatments from rain!

Both the bait and the spray treatments can be expected to be less effective after rainfall. Rain quantities of 10-15 l / m² are sufficient to wash off the spray deposits or bait droplets.

Contrary to the general recommendations, the treatments before precipitation (24-48 hours beforehand), after evaluating the course of the infestation in 2014, are classified by us as very important!

The precipitation leads to best egg-laying conditions and to a higher egg production of Spotted Wing Drosophila. Thus, the control measures one to two days before precipitation events are of increased importance! Even small populations are able to cause damage under these conditions. If treatment is only carried out after the rainfall, the maggots continue to develop because there is no curative agent available and the infestation rocks. The intervals between treatments only need to be reduced in the case of very strong influx.

Small droplets size is recommended in SWD managment. Use air injection nozzles or modified ATR droplets to disperse baitspray.

 

Coarse droplets are only recommended for fruit fly bait applications. Do not use in SWD control!

For grapes, an application in the area of the grape zone and about 30 cm above in the foliage zone is recommended. A one-sided treatment of this area is sufficient. A four-row application with a modified ATR nozzle, which sprays below the grape zone into the next grape row, is recommended on large areas.
