The majority of Rotorworx’s summer is occupied eradicating the presence of fruit flies in the agricultural sectors of the Western and Eastern Cape.
GF-120 which is used for fruit fly bating is mixed 1:1 with water. This ratio compares favourably with the usual ground application methods which vary between 1:5 and 1:30. These special nozzles release 1mm-5mm droplets of this concentrated mixture, ensuring that the flies are baited effectively.
The goal is to strategically place these droplets where flies will find them in their normal search for food. Our pilots are able to cover on average 200ha-300ha per hour, flying at approximately 30m above the area, making it a fast and highly effective process.
