Title
(EN) GNAT-TRAPPING HYDROPONIC LID AND WRAPPER AND METHOD FOR USE THEREOF
(FR) COUVERCLE ET CUBE HYDROPONIQUES, PIÈGES À MOUCHES NOIRES ET LEUR PROCÉDÉ DUTILISATION
Abstract
(EN)
A Gnat-trapping Hydroponic Lid (30) and Wrapper (61). The lid is configured to be placed over the top of a hydroponic cube (12) or hydroponic basket. The top surface (40) of the lid is best if colored in a manner that attracts gnats and other flying insects. The bottom surface (44) of the lid is best if black or other dark color that will inhibit mold formation. There are one or more holes (34) in the lid to accommodate a seedling growing therethrough and possibly an irrigation tube going down into it. A connecting slit (3S) running between an edge (32) of the lid and the seedling aperture so that the lid can be removed without damaging the seedling. The lid has an adhesive (42) applied to its top surface that will capture gnats and other flying insects landing thereon. In another embodiment, a supplemental sheath (62) is wrapped around a hydroponic cube. This inner sheath has the gnat adhesive applied to it. There is then a second (outer) protective sheath applied around the cube, over the top of the gnat adhesive.
(FR)
Couvercle et cube hydroponiques pièges à mouches noires et leur procédé d'utilisation. Le couvercle se place sur un cube ou panier hydroponiques; sa surface supérieure est de préférence colorée pour attirer les mouches noires et autres insectes volants et sa surface inférieure est de préférence noire ou sombre pour empêcher la formation de moisissure. Le couvercle est percé d'un ou plusieurs trous recevant un plant et éventuellement un tube d'irrigation le traversant. Une fente de connexion allant d'un bord du couvercle au trou d'où sort le plant permet de retirer le couvercle sans endommager le plant. La surface supérieure du couvercle sera revêtue d'un adhésif piégeant les insectes s'y posant. Dans une autre exécution, le cube hydroponique est entouré d'une gaine intérieure supplémentaire également revêtue d'un adhésif piégeant les insectes, et d'une deuxième gaine protectrice disposée au-dessus de l'adhésif.
