Every farmer or any other person who has a garden plot knows how difficult it is to deal with whiteflies. This harmful butterfly is one of the most harmful insects in the territory of the present CIS. Butterfly larvae usually inhabit the underside of leaves; they are invisible. Sucking the juice, the larvae cause yellowing and wilting of plants. In addition, whiteflies can often carry viral diseases. Chemical preparations do not particularly help, because the insect gets used to them, and your products will turn out to be heavily contaminated with pesticides.
But scientists have found a new method of combating this pest - biotechnological, using optical stimuli. It is based on a thorough study of the natural reactions and behavior of insects. Scientists have found that whitefly is a favorite color - yellow. This allowed us to offer an original and simple way to deal with it. The most attractive for whiteflies is the saturated yellow color of a strictly defined tone. This color is used in special traps. They are made of special paper, which is coated on both sides with the dye of the desired color and glue. Something like Velcro for flies, but it is more effective.
