Eco-naturalure is the first fruit fly control to combine a unique protein-based fruit fly attractant and a highly effective BFA registered insecticide. eco-naturalure can be applied to fruit or foliage and treated fruit can be eaten the same day. The bait is applied to either 1m2 of foliage or to a small plywood board (1600cm2) and hung in the canopy of the tree or close to the crop. The bait will be attractive to fruit fly for up to 7 days.
How it Works Lure and Kill: eco-naturalure lures fruit fly to feed on it via specific protein feed attractants. As fruit fly feed they also ingest the natural insecticide "spinosad". Spinosad effectively kills fruit fly once ingested. The food attractants in eco-naturalure are extremely good at attracting fruit fly. This means that only very small amounts of eco-naturalure are needed to control fruit fly in your garden or orchard. See below for rates.
Target Juvenile Females: Targeting female fruit fly will help minimize fruit lost to maggots (fruit fly larvae). Early application is the most effective way to ensure females are killed before they have a chance to mate and lay their eggs in fruit. Reducing the population of fruit fly early in the season will result in less damaged fruit. Apply from flower drop.
