Mating Disruption for Oriental Fruit Moth

CheckMate® Puffer® OFM-O

Season long pheromone control for Oriental fruit moth

CheckMate® Puffer® OFM-O is Suterra’s aerosol release pheromone for Oriental fruit moth (OFM) control in stone fruit and other crops where OFM is a pest.

The fast-to-deploy product releases a precise, consistent amount of OFM sex pheromone throughout the orchard, reducing adult males’ ability to find females. This disrupts the mating cycle and suppresses pest populations.

CheckMate® Puffer® OFM-O is compatible with all Integrated Pest Management (IPM) tools.
