PHEROCON® VI DELTA Trap
Codling moth (CM), Cydia pomonella, is a major pest of apples and pears in most parts of the world. The PHEROCON® line of insect monitoring lures and traps includes several options. Ranging from the original quality pheromone only septa lures with the CM Standard 1X, CM Standard 10X, and CM L2, to multi-gender attractants with the CMDA COMBO™, and the PVC based CM L2-P and CMDA COMBO-P. There are many options depending on your IPM program and objectives.
PHEROCON® CMDA COMBO-S with and without AA
Septa Lure Technology
The original quality CM septa (-S) lures, first red, then grey, contained the CM sex pheromone and captured only males. With the addition of pear ester kairomone (DA) to the septa lure, the CMDA COMBO-S captures both genders in traps and allows for monitoring in mating disrupted orchards. This original multi-gender attractant system can be used with and without the acetic acid (+ AA) lure synergist and has an 8-week field longevity.
PHEROCON® CMDA COMBO ™- P + AA with and without AA
PVC Lure Technology
The PVC (-P) lures are based on Trécé’s superior technology using a proprietary formulation matrix. The new CMDA COMBO-P lure is improved over the standard CMDA COMBO-S with higher captures of male and female CM, ultra-long-lasting field longevity of 12 weeks, and better overall results in mating disrupted orchards than septa lures. The CM L2-P provides better pheromone only results and has a 12-week field longevity. Both lures are approved for use in organic orchards. Results of a field trial conducted in conventional Washington apple orchards showed a 2.9x higher capture rate on average with the CMDA COMBO-P + AA lure over the duration of the trial, significantly more CM captured during the peak of the flights, and greater sensitivity to tracking phenology over the season when the capture rate with the CMDA COMBO-S + AA lure was extremely low.
Better Overall Results with CMDA COMBO-P
The CMDA COMBO-P lure consistently captures more CM on average in both domestic and internationally conducted field trials. This lure provides an increased sensitivity in high and low populations environments and allows for better tracking of the phenology over the growing season, making CMDA COMBO-P a better option for monitoring CM in both conventional and mating disrupted orchards. Contact local extension authorities and consultants for regional advice.
