Biobest UK managing director Phil Walker said: "Droso Trap has been modified with vertical bars in the lateral openings to reduce the catch of solitary bees and other large flying insects. While the number of non-target insects caught has been reduced, trials show improvements to this high quality trap have not impacted on SWD catches."

Developed in the US by specialist manufacturer Trécé, it uses attractants which are specific to SWD, housed in a purpose-built dispenser which makes for easier monitoring over a longer period, Sentomol says.
