KALINGAG – insect pest repellant

The most damaging insect pest
that preys on fruits is the fruitfly. Once it gets into the
flesh of any fruit, it can reproduce and spread wherever that
fruit may be brought. Thus, in efforts of importing countries
to avoid the entrance of this pest into their territories,
strict regulation are imposed on incoming fruits, for instance
our mango.

It was found out by a scientist
from the Bureau of Plant Industry in Quezon that the bark of
the Kalingag attracts insects, especially the fruitfly, thus
facilitate their entrapment.

Procedure:

1. Pulverized the bark of the
bark of the Kalingag tree.

2. Mix the powder in 2% water
solution that is, 2 grams per liter of water.

3. Put this in containers with
traps.

The friutflies will approach
it, especially early in the morning and late
afternoons.
