Evaluation of Trécé Cidetrack Pheromone and Kairomone Dispensers in Mating Disruption of Codling Moth, Cydia pomoneiia
MetadataShow full item record
In an attempt to create high performance mating disruption, Trece Co. developed a new Cidetrack dispenser for use in the disruption of codling moth, C. Pomonella, mating disruption. The dispensers were designed for codlemone, pear ester (ethyl (E,Z)-2,4-decadienoate) and a combination of these two. In 2005, Trece Cidetrack dispensers loaded with codlemone (40%) and pear ester (60%) disrupted mating better than the industry standard, Isomate-C Plus dispensers. However, in 2006, Cidetrack dispensers loaded with 100% codlemone either outperformed the dispensers loaded with 60% codlemone and 40% pear ester. The Cidetrack dispensing only codlemone did better than the industry standard Isomate-C Plus in the first generation, but failed to repeat these results in the second generation. However, no treatments reached a high performance mating disruption (98%). There was also no benefit seen in using a plant kairomone in addition to a codlemone.
