Hello After a 14 days that i found adult of tuta in tomato i found larvaes on leaves with damage like on picture. I put the 20 traps(tutasan) on 1 ha after i found adults, but still after 7 days i din´t found adults on them... What is next step?

I don´t know is it fresh pheromones i think they are because i got them from Koppert!

I put liquid soap in water where are pheromones( Tutasan), is this ok, or should i put just oil in that water??

Today i found adults (2 new) in water, but i have many hot spots in greenhouse where is my tomato, what should i do next?

My oppinion:

To introduce Macrolophus caliginosus (5 ad/m2) on hot spots, or to spray this hot spots with spinosad(very harmful to macrolophus) or bacillus thuringiensis( not harmful to macrolophus).

What do you think?
