Technology offer : Brocap®, Trap for coffee berry borer

Technology's description

The coffee berry borer is a major pest of coffee. The traditional control methods are limited. We propose an economic environmentally solution.

Insecticides uses has limitations:

  • the risk of toxic residues;
  • the lack of selectivity of insecticides which kills natural enemies of the beetle;
  • resistance for coffee berry borer to insecticides.


Thanks to this design adapted trap, tailored to the biology of the insect and its powerful attractant mixture, this trap effectively fights against this pest. It can be used for organic farming.



Advantages

  • The weight yield of commercial coffee increases from 10 to 16%.
  •  High efficiency: up to 10,000 beetles per trap per day.
  • Very selective trapping 97% of captured insects are beetles of coffee.
  • In the medium term, the cost is lower compared to insecticide treatment.
  • Appropriate for organic farming
