The device takes daily pictures of the sticky plate with insect placed in the trap and sends them via GPRS connection to ERSA ( regional agency for rural development) in Pordenone.
The device is self-sufficient in the field because it is powered by a battery that is charged with solar panels, fixed on a pole.
Using this trap is useful to control the daily capture situation and to automatically count moths in traps with a software. Until now this has been done manually, since the system is still in an experimental phase.
There is no doubt that this system is the most useful one, since it is already working properly by remote controlling the wineries. In fact, it doesn’t require to be phisically in the vineyard and daily control permits to detect the presence of the moths.
