The False Codling Moth (FCM), scientifically known as Thaumatotibia leucotreta, presents a significant challenge in the cultivation of various crops, including roses, citrus, peppers, and maize. Controlling FCM has become a top priority for growers worldwide. FCM is an economically important pest for roses as it causes crop damage and is categorized as a quarantine pest by the European Union (EU).
In our continuous efforts to combat FCM and support rose growers, we introduce an innovative solution – FCM Phero Lure Paste 4%. This cutting-edge product harnesses the power of synthetic sex pheromones, specifically targeting the mating behavior of FCM.
Pheromone Paste works by disrupting the natural mating patterns of male FCM moths. The carefully formulated paste releases synthetic pheromones, mimicking the scent emitted by female moths. As a result, male moths become confused and unable to locate females for mating, leading to a significant reduction in FCM reproduction. The FCM Phero Lure Paste 4% contains a higher concentration of
E-8-Dodecenyl acetate and Z-8-Dodecenyl acetate making the product more effective and lasting longer.
Environmentally Friendly: Pheromone Paste is a sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to pest management. It specifically targets FCM while minimizing the impact on beneficial insects, pollinators, and the ecosystem as a whole.
Effective Mating Disruption: By disrupting the mating behavior of FCM moths, Pheromone Paste provides long-lasting control and reduces the risk of crop damage caused by larvae.
Integrated Pest Management: Pheromone Paste can be seamlessly integrated into an overall pest management strategy. By combining it with monitoring, cultural practices, and other control methods, growers can optimize FCM control and minimize the need for conventional insecticides.
