To avoid imbalances in agricultural systems, damaging beneficial fauna, and risking the health of farmers and consumers due to extensive insecticide use
Technical result: The mass trapping strategy significantly reduced the pest population of the plot and the fruit damage, without using any kind of chemical insecticide neither inside the trap nor by spraying.
Economic result: The mass trapping system is replacing the program of recurrent insecticide applications, as a complementary tool within the integrated pest management (IPM) and offering an efficient and economically viable option for the optimal control of fruit flies.
Sustainability (ecological, social and economical) Gains:
Minimises pollution, reduces managing of pesticide active ingredients
Promotes biodiversity by protecting beneficial fauna
Reduces reliance on pesticides
Enables farmer and consumer health and safety
Demonstrates farmer technical good governance
Improvement of financial viability, by lowering insecticide applications costs
Promotes quality of fruit by reducing chemical residues
