If you are wanting to target specific species you can adjust the traps accordingly but selecting the items best suited.

Fill the trap with water and add wild may fly attractant to lure and trap the Male Queensland fruit fly that are attracted inside by the scent of the lure. They will not be able to escape once inside and will drown in the liquid.

The secret behind a successful fruit fly trap program that can dramatically reduce Queensland fruit fly numbers is to use a lure that attracts the females to the trap. Females are attracted to the food but the males are attracted to the sex. Use a product like eco-naturalure to attract Male and Female Queensland fruit flies. The female lays the eggs in the fruit and then the maggots develop, so we need to catch the female fruit fly!

Growers need to be setting up monitoring traps and baiting for fruit flies as soon as they are detected. Both the male and female require a protein feed once they emerge from the pupae stage but the male will happily go away and live on sugar and water. You can reduce financial deficits from losing rotten crops, losing export markets and cover spraying with hundreds and thousands of litres of expensive insecticides if applied correctly.

Flies love the smell of herring, so simply add the attractant to the trap, stir in two cups of cold water and place in direct sunlight. The trap should be placed away from the house, in the outdoors only and should be kept out of reach of children. The attractant takes 24-48 hours to activate but will last 6 weeks if water is added regularly and the water level is above trapped flies.
