Use of Sprayable Pheromone Formulations in Europe
Abstract: Sprayable formulations of pheromones for the mating disruption control of different moth species offers an innovative alternative to the use of the current dispenser based technologies. While still assuring the same efficacy as the dispenser systems, the sprayables offer greater flexibility and ease of use. Applied using standard spray equipment, the sprayables can be combined with other treatments. The paper will review the technology, efficacy and use strategies of the Checkmate sprayable technology in Europe.
