Pink Boll Worm Delta Traps

Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service | Published August 13, 2015  -  Deadline August 28, 2015
cpvs

The USDA Animal Plant Health Inspection Service, Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) requires the purchase of Pink Boll Worm Paper Delta Traps (PBWPDT) in accordance with specifications. This will be a Firm Fixed Priced Indefinite Quantity Indefinite Delivery Contract for a base period of 12 months with (4) possible 12 month option periods. Acceptance of traps is conditioned on approved lots of paperboard. Background: The PBWPDT is utilized in monitoring of the Pink Boll Worm (Pectinophora gossypiella) a highly destructive insect of cotton. The goal of APHIS-PPQ is to define the extent of these infestations or potential infestations and limit artificial spread beyond the infested area through quarantine and an active regulatory and treatment program. These programs are an effective Federal-State-International partnership that prevents the establishment of Pink Boll Worm in new areas. In order to carry out this program's objective, PPQ requires Paper Delta Traps to conduct insect presence surveys to support decision-making for program activities. Objective: The Pink Boll Worm program utilizes this PBWPDT in conjunction with specific pheromones to effectively monitor populations. Without the requested traps, effectively defining infestations might not be possible and the ultimate cost of an eradication or control project could exceed millions of dollars should this trap not be available. Specifications Material: The traps shall be fabricated of hard sized, liquid packaging grade ½ gallon milk carton paperboard stock with 0.024 inch nominal thickness and polyethylene plastic-coating on both sides. Variance from nominal thickness no greater than +0.002" will be tolerable. The coating is typically 0.0062" outside (=9lbs. per 3,000 sq. ft.) and 0.0012" inside. It is essential that the traps described herein are capable of withstanding outside service for a period of 90 days. Paperboard (milk carton grade) must exhibit good liquid holdout capability, especially where edges and cuts are exposed. The drainage holes need to be completely punched out. This is measured by a "paperboard test" which tests the sample paperboard against an international paperboard standard. The industry standard range of weight for water absorption should be 1.5%-2%, and the percent of water absorbed in the sample paperboard should be equal to or less than the industry standard or not greater than 10% of the standard. The Delta Trap design is required in one color: orange outside and white inside. See Attachment 2 for more information Acceptance Criteria The conditional acceptance will focus on the following factor: 1. Quality Control Inspection of Traps: 2. First Article Procedures In Accordance With 52.209-4 First Article Approval-Government Testing 3. Acceptance of traps is conditioned on approved lots of paperboard.
