eco-naturalure is a Certified Organic fruit fly control bait spray for male and female flies.
  • Effective against Queensland and Mediterranean fruit flies
  • Attracts and kills both male and female fruit flies
  • Easy to apply as a spot spray so you don't need to spray entire plants/trees
  • Certified Organic (Australian Organic)
  • No withholding period
  • General Precautions

    Avoid spraying directly on to the fruit as some have sensitive skins which may superficially blemish.

    Withholding period

    No withholding period. Safe to spray and eat the same day.

    Sizes/Options Available

    150ml, 500ml and 1L Concentrates

    Certified/Registered Organic?

    Yes (Australian Organic, formerly BFA)

    Coverage

    10ml of product, mixed with 60ml of water, will protect 50 square metres per week.

    How to use

    Dilute eco-naturalure in a small amount of water and spray in patches over plants. Spray as coarse droplets which will stay moist for many days and remain attractive to the fruit flies. Repeat spray every 7 days or if rain washes off.

    Can also be applied to non-absorbent hard surfaces (eg painted boards) and hung around plant foliage.

    It is essential to start spraying early in the season to prevent fruit fly numbers escalating and to also protect immature fruit. Flies can sting rock hard fruit as small as a marble.

    Active Ingredient

    Spinosad plus attractants

    How it works

    eco-naturalure contains a mixture of specific food attractants and an organic insecticide. When fruit flies feed on eco-naturalure the insecticide is also taken in and kills flies preventing them from spoiling fruit.
