Important Note Regarding Colour Change in Lure When Exposed to Sunlight
It is not unusual to observe a change in colour of the VESPEX European Wasp Liquid Lure from its normal reddish colour to clear. This is the affect of the sun bleaching the colouring in the liquid lure.
This change in colour can occur within 24 hours, or take even longer when the traps are located in shaded areas. A change in colour has no affect on the effectiveness of the product.
REMOTE BAITING OF EUROPEAN WASP NESTS – AUSTRALIA’S FIRST AND ONLY APVMA APPROVED SOLUTION
Controlling populations of European wasps when it is not possible to locate nests for application of direct insecticide treatment has been a challenge for many years in Australia. VESPEX European Wasp Lure is approved for use in insecticide baiting when mixed with Sundew EnsnarePRO 50SC Insecticide in situations where nests are not able to be located and directly treated.
Another Australian First by Sundew Solutions!
The use of mixing Sundew VESPEX Lure with Sundew EnsnarePRO 50 SC to form a toxicant bait is the first and only APVMA approved baiting solution researched and developed by Sundew Solutions here in Australia.
VESPEX European wasp baiting programs should only be conducted by Sundew VESPEX Accredited Specialists. Incorrect installation and use of the VESPEX system could result in unpredictable results.Click here to enrol now>
EnsnarePRO contains the active ingredient indoxacarb. Indoxacarb is from a class of insecticides developed with non-repellent properties (i.e. insects cannot detect its presence). This clever active ingredient is designed to not interfere with insects’ behaviours and has a delayed mode of action.
A treatment is made by mixing EnsnarePRO with VESPEX European Wasp Lure to form a base baiting toxicant liquid. The prepared bait is then strategically deployed using VESPEX Tunnel Stations following a grid density pattern. There is no requirement to find the nests as the wasps collect the bait from the feeder trays in the wasp tunnel stations and carry it back to the nest. The wasps then share the bait with larvae, queen and fellow workers, quickly destroying the nest.
VESPEX EUROPEAN WASP BAITING MUST ONLY BE CONDUCTED BY PERSONS WHO ARE REGISTERED WITH SUNDEW SOLUTIONS AS ACCREDITED SPECIALISTS
