Yes. For Mediteranean and Natal fruit fly, 4 male fruit flies per Capilure and 1 female per Questlure. For Natal fly it is 2 male flies per Capilure. Please note, these thresholds have only been determined for Capilure and Questlure and not for other lures. Higher numbers of flies per trap per week for the above thresholds indicate that extra control measures are needed.
