Trapping is a widely used technique for monitoring and capturing insects.
The trap is made up of the container that work as a container of the captured insects and of the sexual (Pheromones) and food attractants (Proteins, Kairomone, etc)
The shape of the trap is very important, since it is designed by studying the behavior of each species to be captured. In the case of Coleoptera such as the red palm weevil, its clumsy and heavy flight makes the truncated cone shape very effective, with its rough surface that makes it easier for the beetle to climb, since, in most of the cases, it walks inside the trap. The design of the traps allows them to be placed on the ground, without the need to be semi-buried, facilitating the inspection, cleaning and replacement of the pheromone and Kairomone. The interior design prevents captured weevils from escaping.
