Fly Catcher Trap

FlyCatcher Trap


International Pheromone McPhail Trap for monitoring and containment of fruit fly species

Russell IPM’s FlyCatcher (McPhail) traps have been developed to be highly effective at trapping a range of fruit fly species. The weatherproof casing is designed for use with pheromone lures for monitoring and mass trapping of flying insects.

The traps are hardwearing and can be used for several seasons. Additionally, as the entry point is below the trap, the FlyCatcher is suitable for outdoor environments that may experience high levels of dust and other debris.

Benefits of the FlyCatcher trap

  • Durable and hardwearing for both indoor and outdoor trapping.
  • Clear casing allows ease of monitoring and identification.
  • Robust trap can be used for several seasons.

Why choose the FlyCatcher from Russell IPM?

Russell IPM’s FlyCatcher is designed to make monitoring of fruit fly simple and efficient. The special yellow funnel entrance has been designed to maximise insect catch so that an accurate picture of the presence of fruit fly is achieved. Accurate monitoring is essential to minimise damage and protect crops. Therefore, installation of the FlyCatcher trap will ensure you are alerted to the presence of unwanted pests at an early stage, detecting the insects before they become a major problem and enabling timely and effective treatment.

Target Insects

Simple and effective monitoring

The FlyCatcher can be utilised with both liquid and solid attractant lures in a range of at risk environments including orchards, greenhouses and quarantine and disposal areas to monitor for economically important fruit fly pests. The traps can be easily cleaned and reused from season to season, making them a cost-effective solution when compared to other monitoring devices on the market. If fruit fly are found within the FlyCatcher, even at low levels, this can be a clear indicator of a potential infestation to inform future control programmes. Additionally, placing the traps at a higher rate throughout the orchard can enable catch of larger numbers to assist with population management.
