FOR CONTROL OF CODLING MOTH
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
NoMate CM Fiber is intended to prevent damage to pome fruit and walnuts caused by codling moth. The product functions by disrupting the mating communication between the sexes of the adult moths. By interfering with the natural mating process, fertile egg laying and subsequent larval infestation can be suppress4, thus reducing the need for conventional insecticides. Reduction in the use of conventional insecticides permits an increase in the populations of parasites and predators which assist in the biological control of other pests.
Use the fber in 1-3 applications per year as needed.
TIMING OF APPLICATION
1. Monitor, using Scentry “Wing Style” or “Large Plastic Delta Style” traps and Scentry CM pheromone lures to determine the time of application. Trap placement should begin early March/April to determine first fight and should continue throughout the season to help assess treatment effectiveness. Change lures every 3 to 4 weeks.
2. Make the first application of NoMate CM Fiber within 2 to 4 days after the first male moth is captured in a trap (biofix). Prediction Degree Day Models can provide assistance in determining application timing. Model information and economic thresholds that may vary according to geographical regions regions are available from your country Farm Advisor.
3. Second and any subsequent application should be timed such that the new application is made before the effect of the previous application significantly diminishes. Codling Moth cycle models, diligent trapping and field checking are all important considerations in the proper timing of an additional fiber application. Check orchards soon after inclement weather to determine if another application is needed.
A sticker in conjunction with fiber is necessary bacause severe weather conditions such as heavy wind and rain can cause \"fibers\" to be knocked off the plants and thus reduce the longevity of a treatment. Check orchards soon after inclement weather to determine if another application is needed.
