Safe, Effective, and Proven Results

CheckMate® VMB-F is Suterra’s pioneering sprayable pheromone release formulation for Vine Mealybug (VMB) mating disruption in grapevines.

The world’s first and only sprayable option for VMB control, this product easily fits into growers’ existing integrated pest management (IPM) program. It is tank mixable with common agrochemicals and works well with nearly any water volume.

CheckMate® VMB-F gives growers the flexibility to spray once or multiple times each season depending on the timing and pressure of VMB in their vineyards. Many leading PCAs recommend the addition of CheckMate® VMB-F used with grower spray programs for additional control. CheckMate® VMB-F can be used together with CheckMate® VMB-XL dispensers for a flexible approach against hot spots or extended season control.
