Mating Disruption for Codling Moth & Multiple Leafroller Species

Puffer® CM-LR

Fast to deploy aerosol pheromone solution for codling moth control

CheckMate® Puffer® CM-LR is Suterra’s optimized aerosol release formulation that provides protection against both codling moth (CM) and multiple leafroller species (LR) in one product. 

Suterra’s innovative solution combines multiple pheromones into one can for integrated, season-long control. Authorized for use in organic orchards, CheckMate® Puffer® CM-LR is the best solution for organic growers to control both CM and LR with the ease of a single product. Puffer® CM-LR is fast to deploy, releasing both the codling moth and leafroller pheromones across the orchard for the duration of the season. This reduces the male pests’ ability to locate females, disrupting the mating cycle and suppressing pest populations.

Checkmate® Puffer® CM-LR is compatible with all integrated pest management (IPM) tools.

Why Growers Choose Puffer® CM-LR

  • Easy and fast deployment, hang one unit for control of two pests
  • Consistent and precise release regardless of weather conditions
  • Does not harm beneficial insects
  • No pre-harvest interval
  • Free collection, recycling and refurbishment of all Puffer materials through our Clean Orchard Promise™
