APPLES, PEARS, QUINCE AND OTHER POME FRUITS, ETC.

General Information

Note: Isomate C TT suppresses mating of target pests. Immigration of mated female moths of these species from adjacent external sources of infestation will reduce the level of control. Manage by:

a. Treatment of external sources of infestation with Isomate C TT.

b. Treatment of external sources of infestation with an effective insecticide.

c. Treatment of pheromone treated orchard with insecticide.

Areawide application is most effective. Supplementary applications of insecticide are advised when Isomate C TT is used in orchards with high pest populations. All pests must be monitored so that timely intervention with insecticides is possible.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

Crops - Apples, pears, quince and other pome fruits; walnut, pecan and other tree nut crops; peaches, prunes, plums, nectarines and other stone fruits.

Target Pests Codling moth (Cydia pomonella), hickory shuckworm (Cydia caryana).

Rate - Minimum of 100 dispensers per acre (1.51 fl oz or 38.24 g a.i. per application). Maximum of 200 dispensers per acre (3.02 fl oz or 76.48 g a.i. per application). Apply maximum rate of dispensers in orchards that are medium to high-risk, such as moderate to heavily infested orchards, or any orchard adjacent to an untreated orchard. Apply double rate of dispensers to edges of orchard. Do not exceed 150 g a.i. (or 392 dispensers) per acre per year.

Application - Place dispensers on lateral branches in upper third of tree canopy. Apply dispensers uniformly in the treated area.

Timing - Apply prior to codling moth emergence in the spring. Consult your local pest control advisor or Pacific Biocontrol representative for proper timing or estimated dispenser longevity in your area.
