How To Ensure That Those Figs Warps Are Being Generated !!!
Assuming that your Figs trees are grown up and started to produce their fruits for the first time.
How do you ensure that the fruits will generate those insects (Figs Warps)?
Some time due to some unknown reasons your figs fruits will not have any of these insects and my advise to you is to find ways to get them over.
The best is to regularly check your fig plant fruiting timing.
Once you know that the fruits have began you then need to check any other matured figs trees closed to yours.
You now need to monitor these tree for their fruits.
Once they started to ripe or close to ripening try to plug a few and break them open.
If they produce those figs warps you can now plug as many as you can and bring to your first time fruiting plant.
You can put these fruits on a special platform below the young tree so that those figs warps will colonize your fruits.
The best is to tie them with a string like a pearl necklace and hang on the lower branches of your tree.
Have a look at this you tube video clip:
The idea is to bring the warps to your trees and not waiting for them to fly from other trees.
You need to do this a couple of times until such time your figs trees are colonized by these figs warps.
Remember your objective is to produce as much insects as possible and if your tree are not producing those insects you need to bring them over.
If you do not know where to get those fruits with warps inside please let me know.
I do have some trees in town with lots of insects.
