BEND, Ore. - June 7, 2022 - PRLog -- Suterra today announced its newest aerosol mating disruption product CheckMate® Puffer® IMM is now OMRI listed® and compliant with organic industry standards. As a result, organic commercial food handling and processing facilities can effectively and efficiently control Indianmeal moth and other stored product moth species.

The new Puffer® IMM uses the same Puffer® technology trusted by thousands of growers in 20 countries. This reliable aerosol device automatically puffs non-toxic, species specific pheromone into the air to confuse and interrupt mating of moths, thus lowering pest populations and helping pest management professionals achieve ultimate control.

"It is a breakthrough to be able to offer an organic product to the increasing number of food processors and handlers that can be used in accordance with National Organic Program Standards," said Vijay Pai, general manager of commercial pests at Suterra. "We are excited to see the industry moving toward preventative control methods, and Checkmate® Puffer® IMM is the best in its class for large-scale food handling facilities with stored product moth challenges."

Additionally, the new Puffer® IMM is easy to deploy and can be used in a variety of commercial settings like food manufacturing, milling, storage, distribution, and retail settings. CheckMate® Puffer® IMM has proven effectiveness at preventing and controlling infestations of Indianmeal moth, Mediterranean flour moth, raisin moth, tropical warehouse moth, and tobacco moth for six months or more.
