Flytac®

Flytac® is a solvent free, non-toxic, non-flammable, water based adhesive, which becomes extremely tacky when comes into contact with carbon dioxide.

Flytac® is paint-on adhesive for Aphid Cards, White Scale Cards, Yellow Cards and Blue Cards to ensure that insects attracted to these cards that make contact with the card will get stuck, until you clean the card and count the insects.

Firstly apply Gladwrap around (over) the monitoring card and then apply the FlyTac®. Slide all your pre-glued cards into the relevant Scale Card or Aphid Card Box® for easy transportation to the field or orchard. Hang these cards out at ideal trapping zone that might differ from target insect to insect.

One week later you collect and replace these cards, once you finished counting these insects you remove the gladwarp and you cards will be ready to repeat the process as described above.

Fruit Fly ID Sheets

These Fruit Fly ID Sheets are used for the easy identification of the economically important fruit flies that are known to attack various fruit types within Africa. The three main types are Ceratitus capitata Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitus cosyra: Marula fruit fly, Ceratitus rosa: Natal fruit fly.

Fruit flies cause a lot of fruit loss from stinging the fruit. It is actually the female that is laying eggs in the fruit after mating with the male. The female lays the eggs just below the skin or surface of the fruit and this is what we see as the sting. Once the eggs hatch, the larvae of the fruit fly, which are small maggots at this stage, feed off the inside of the fruit before turning into adult fruit fly. The end result is spoilt fruit that goes rotten and is wasted.

Use these ID sheets in combination with your fruit fly traps to assist in the correct infield identification of different fruit flies that has been caught in the weekly monitoring traps.

Red Scale ID Card

Red Scale Infestation Indication Chart was developed to assist growers to understand the live cycle of the red scale and to enhance the ease of counting by comparing the scale cards recovered from the field with the actual size cards illustrated. At the bottom of the chart is a weekly reminder sheet the grower can make on when he should replace the C.R.S. PheroLure®. These PheroLures last for a period of 5 weeks after placement in the field. The infestation chart will also assist the grower to calculate the degree-day module to determine crawler movement to time chemical application.

Once scale cards are recovered from the field the grower compare scale cards to the illustrated cards on the chart to determine the population range without actually counting all the red scale males on both of the scale cards. Follow then the degree-day module to time crawler movement.
