Codling moth (Cydia pomonella)
Apples, pears and nashi.
Pheroklip® CM is a novel pheromone mating disruption formulation for control of codling moth.
Pheroklip® CM (applied 1000 per hectare) has the same loading, release rates and field life as the competitive capillary equivalents, and operate on the same mating disruption principal.
The difference is that the Pheroklip® formulation is far easier and faster to apply than capillaries, especially when applying high in the trees where codling moth females call their mates.
What about Pheroklip CM Double? We have a Pheroklip® CM Double on the books but we don’t want to release it for good technical reasons. We now know that Pheroklip® CM at 500 points per hectare is as effective as Pheroklip® CM double at 500 points per hectare and a good deal cheaper. (We do not recommend using off label rates of Pheroklip® CM but these are the facts of the matter)
