Pheromone - Lure - Trap
The tomato leaf miner, Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) is a serious pest of tomato. Larvae feeds on all parts of tomato plant, produce large galleries in leaves and burrow into green and ripe fruits. Losses of up to 100% have been observed in infested tomato crops. The main host plant is tomato but this insect can also attack potato, aubergine and solanaceous weeds.

TUA-Optima : Russell IPM manufactures and supplies pheromone lure, and complete monitoring systems for Tuta absoluta. Pheromone trap based on TUA-Optima gives early warning of infestation and also exhibits the density of the insect accurately in low population to medium

Tuta+ Is a new sticky roll for Tuta absoluta. It is a ready to use system where Tuta absoluta pheromone released from sticky adhesive layer. It is a very simple and easy to use system with a high capture rate.
It helps to reduce population in greenhouses particularly if insect exclusion nets and tight doors were used. Ferolite is a trap which can be used for mass trapping, which is a technique that involves placing a higher number of traps in the crop field in various strategic positions to remove a sufficiently high proportion of male insects from the pest population.

A Wide Range Of Colored Sticky Boards And Rolls That Are Specially Designed To Attract Phytophagous Insects Insects are attracted to the specific colour. The wavelength of yellow and blue spectra of light has an effect on soft bodied insects. Russell IPM offers a wide range of coloured sticky traps that are specially designed to attract phytophagous insects. It provides high tack to capture small insects such as white fly, aphids, leaf miner, thrips. It is compatible with high temperature and sprinklers without dropping or losing performance. The glue is UV light stable, and adheres more to the board than the human skin or clothing fibers. It is truly clean touch.
■ Clean Touch ■ UV light stable ■ No mess, dry glue board ■ Specific fluorescent yellow and blue colour ■ Easy to count trapped insect with grid lines ■ Highly attractive ■ Easy to Handle ■ Environmentally friendly
The yellow traps are recommended for whiteflies, Aphids and Leaf miners. The blue traps are recommended for Thrips. We have a wide range of pressure sensitive adhesive coating equipment to produce different sizes and formats of boards and rolls. Russell IPM has the technology to incorporate release rate attractant from the adhesive layer.

Russell IPM has developed and marketed successfully ConScent systems for a number of insect pests which showed a great level of control with high level of reliability. The release technology lends itself to be utilized for other insects. For the control of Cydia pomonella Codling moth, it can achieve a high level of control through out the season. It is Ideal to be part

ConScent-GM Oriental fruit moth is highly susceptible to pheromone-mediated mating disruption. It has been proved as a successful control technique in apple and pear orchard in many counties. Our hand-applied dispensers are used to control first, second, third generation of Grapholita molesta alone. A substantial level of control of oriental fruit moth could be achieved if ConScentGM is applied at the beginning of the season. We also offer mating disruption control measures for Pink Bollworm, Pectinophora gossypiella, Brinjal fruit and shoot borer, Leucinodes orbonalis, Tomato Pineworm, Keiferia lycopersicella; Pine Sawfly, Neodiprion sertifer; etc. We could also design mating disruption technique for the insect of your interest.

The main active ingredient of neem seed oil is Azadirachtin which has proven to be effective against insects, mites, whiteflies, aphids, cutworms, fungus gnats, shore flies, leaf miners, thrips and other soft bodied insects. Fytomax is also effective against root rots, powdery mildews, rusts, scab, leaf spots and blights. The multiple modes of action make it unlikely to insect and plant pathogen resistant.

Fytomax has been proven effective against root nematodes of tomatoes, banana and melons. It is effective on the following insects and diseases:
Fytomax is a powerful insect growth regulator, a feeding deterrent and an oviposition deterrent. Fytomax has two profound effects on insects. At the physical level, it blocks the synthesis and release of molting hormones (ecdysteroids) from the prothorasic gland, leading to incomplete ecdysis in immature insects. In adult female insects, a similar mechanism of action leads to sterility. In addition, Fytomax is a potent antifeedant. Insect does not like the plant or leaf surfaces
