Diatrapper is an alternative pest management system for cultivated grasses (such as sugarcane, corn, rice, and sorghum), specially designed to attack one of their most aggressive pests: the sugarcane borer (Diatraea saccharalis f.).

This system is intended to increase the productivity of cultivated grasses while keeping the environment free from pesticides, the crops natural and organic, and the consumers and farmers safe from potentially harmful toxins.
