Mating Disruption for Oriental Fruit Moth

CheckMate® OFM-SL+ Dispenser

Suterra
Season-long targeted passive release pheromone solution for Oriental fruit moth control

CheckMate® OFM-SL+ is Suterra’s season-long mating disruption dispenser for control of Oriental fruit moth (OFM) in stone fruit crops.

This easy-to-deploy product releases the sex pheromone of the OFM pest continuously throughout the orchard, reducing adult males’ ability to find females. This disrupts the mating cycle and suppresses pest populations.

CheckMate® OFM-SL+ utilizes Suterra’s proprietary release technology and is compatible with all Integrated Pest Management (IPM) tools. This product is also suitable for organic production.
