Automated traps

TRAPVIEW won multiple innovation awards and is patent pending.

Trapview STANDARD

Most widely deployed model of the trap has a similar external appearance as the conventional delta traps, therefore its pest catch efficiency is on the same level with conventional traps as well.

Used for monitoring

  • codling moths – Cydia pomonella in apples and pears
  • plum fruit moths – Grapholita funebrana in plums
  • tomato leafminers – Tuta absoluta in tomatoes
  • cotton bollworm – Helicoverpa armigera in over 180 cultivated hosts
  • grape berry moths – Lobesia botrana and Eupoecilia ambiguella in wine grapes
  • oriental fruit moths – Cydia molesta in peaches
  • diamondback moth – Plutella Xylostella in plants from Cruciferae family / Brassica
  • and many more

Contact us for more details and full list of monitored insects

Trapview AURA

Trapview AURA uses a light lure that attracts insects by polarized UV light. A light trap is the most reliable method for monitoring of night moths, such as European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis), which have a poor response to chemical attractants. Trapview AURA enables a combination of light and chemical lures in the same trap so that it enables monitoring of a wide range of pests.

Used for monitoring:

  • European corn borers – Ostrinia nubilalis in corn

Temperature and humidity sensor

If temperature and humidity sensors are added to the trap, it is also possible to have more data about local weather conditions. Temperature degree days chart for chosen pest enables even better decision making.

External Antenna

In remote areas with a good access to mobile network is a bit of a chalenge an additional external antenna is recommended to improve reception of the mobile network signal.

Trapview Applications

Access your pest related data from everywhere.

TRAPVIEW WEB application offers a detailed view of high resolution images taken from the trap and includes some analytical features for comparison of data over time. With the software for automated marking and counting of pests also alarms for pest occurrence can be triggered. It is also possible to connect temperature and humidity sensors for collecting local weather data. Based on that the Trapview WEB enables the insight into the history data and provides some statistical presentation of pest counts too.

TRAPVIEW MOBILE application enables users to take pictures of sticky plates of the “manual” traps, to add data regarding number of insects on those sticky plates and to upload all the data to the Trapview system, where it is shown next to data gathered from automated traps. That allows matrix monitoring (multiple traps per hectare), having all pest related data in one place and combining early warning system with conventional monitoring for even better monitoring and cost performance.

Frequently Asked Questions

We collected the answers to our users' most frequent questions in the FAQ section below.

  • Usually one trap will cover 1-5 hectares (2.5-12 acres) - similar as any standard pheromone trap. Exact number of needed traps depends upon configuration of the orchard/field.

  • How does it compare to standard pheromone delta trap? Why is TRAPVIEW a smart trap?

    In terms of attracting and catching pests TRAPVIEW is very similar to any standard delta trap. Experiments in Germany, UK, Slovenia and Italy show very similar catches as standard traps with identical dynamic. TRAPVIEW is a smart trap because sticky insert where insects are caught is being automatically photographed each day (or more times a day if needed) which allows users to be aware of pest situation in the field in real time.

  • How often trap needs attendance?

    Trap needs to be attended when the (sticky plate) is full, or when pheromone needs to be changed. Frequency really depends upon the pest and area where trap is placed. In some cases – like when using mating disruption system for example you should be fine with one sticky plate for the whole year. In other cases sticky plate should be changed more often. Each TRAPVIEW trap comes with solar panel which charged battery, which makes it completely energy independent.

  • TRAPVIEW traps are green - how can I locate them?

    Each TRAPVIEW trap comes with built-in GPS receiver and location of the trap is sent with every picture transmission. This makes it very easy to always find the trap in the field.

  • Can TRAPVIEW be used for only one pest?

    TRAPVIEW can be used for any insect which can be efficiently lured into delta trap with appropriate pheromone. This make it versatile monitoring tool.

  • Are pheromones included?

    No. You can use any pheromone from any provider.

  • Is SIM card included?

    It depends upon arrangement. In general you can use your own standard size SIM card.

  • Can the installation be done without support?

    Yes. Based on instructions provided with each trap you should be able to assemble and install TRAPVIEW in the field.

  • When is it best time to install the traps?

    It is advised, that traps are installed a few weeks before expected start of the flight of first generation of targeted pest and retracted from the field after the end of the season.

  • How to store the trap during the winter?

    Switch off the trap (with the switch at the side of the board) put back the glass cover which protects electronics and place it in the storage.

  • When battery is empty it seems to be charging slowly? Is there any other way to charge it besides solar panel?

    Li-Ion battery is inside each TRAPVIEW. In order to prevent damage which could happen if empty battery is suddenly overcharged a special electronics which regulates optimal charging is included. Usually first few charging cycles will take longer before normal charging cycle is enabled. Trap is also automatically charged when USB cable is plugged.

  • What cloud processing does to images that come from traps?

    Cloud processing plays crucial role at picture manipulation. Multiple images received from each trap are processed, enhanced, stitched together and pests are being automatically recognized.A set of other operations is performed in order to optimally prepare raw data for further usage.

  • Can data be pulled from the cloud to other portals/systems?

    Yes. a set of web services is prepared in order to allow other systems to collect data.

  • Is data archived?

    Yes. All pictures and metadata are available for at least two seasons. After that full size pictures are available on demand, while all metadata (number of pests, image thumbnails, all events, etc) remain fully available without time limitation.

  • Yes. If you own TRAPVIEW then you can access data related to your traps and to traps to which others have granted you access.

  • Does application changes over time?

    Yes. On average there are updates every two months, where changes based on feedback from our clients are deployed.

  • What is needed to run the application?

    Latest version of one of major browsers should be fine. Each release of application is also being tested on a set of different popular mobile devices before it is publicly available.

  • Why do I need support&service pack?

    Support &service pack gives you access to the TRAPVIEW support team which has the most comprehensive knowledge of the product. It also gives you full access to all advanced features of the application including automatic image recognition, manual marking of pests and advanced statistics.

  • Is support&service pack mandatory?

    After the first year,when it is included in the price, it is not mandatory to take support&service pack.
