Tap-Trap® “the tap-trap” has been used successfully for many years, both nationally and internationally, in controlling flying pests in orchards, vineyards and all kind of farming.
Tap-Trap® is made of tough, durable plastic material. Hooked onto a recycled plastic water bottle (filled with half a liter of bait mixture) and hung on branches of the plants to be defended, Tap-Trap® becomes an economical, effective and environmentally friendly bio trap.
