Mating Disruption for Codling Moth & Oriental Fruit Moth

CheckMate® Puffer® CM-OFM Pro

Suterra
One season-long solution to control both codling moth and Oriental fruit moth

CheckMate® Puffer® CM-OFM Pro is Suterra's optimized aerosol release formulation that provides protection against both codling moth (CM) and Oriental fruit moth (OFM) in one product. It can be used in apples, pears and other crops where both CM and OFM are pests.

This proprietary formulation results in enhanced aerosolization of the pheromone creating a spray that better penetrates targeted areas of the canopy. The fast-to-deploy product releases a precise, consistent amount of CM and OFM sex pheromone throughout the orchard, reducing adult males’ ability to find females.

Checkmate® Puffer® CM-OFM Pro is compatible with all Integrated Pest Management (IPM) tools.
