The rainfastness of a microencapsulated sex pheromone formulation for codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.), was evaluated in a series of laboratory experiments with detached apple, pear, and walnut leaves. Increasing the intensity and duration of simulated rainfall significantly increased the removal of microcapsules from both the top and bottom of apple(More)
The effects of two formulations of microencapsulated pheromone (CheckMate CM-F), containing 14.3% (E,E)-8,10-dodecadien-1-ol (codlemone), on the behaviour of the male codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.), were evaluated in a flight tunnel after several periods of formulation ageing. The two treatments of CheckMate CM-F evaluated consisted of the(More)
The application of a microencapsulated (MEC) sex pheromone formulation (Checkmate CM-F) for codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.), in low volume, concentrated sprays was evaluated in a series of small plot and grower trials in apple, Malus domestica Borkhausen, and pear, Pyrus communis L. Preliminary tests found that MEC sprays applied at 172-207 kilopascals(More)
