CheckMate® VMB-XL is Suterra’s season-long mating disruption dispenser for control of Vine Mealybug (VMB) in grapevines. This easy-to-deploy product releases the sex pheromone of the VMB pest continuously throughout the vineyard, reducing adult males’ ability to find females to disrupt the mating cycle and suppress pest populations.

CheckMate® VMB-XL utilizes Suterra’s proprietary release technology and is compatible with all integrated pest management (IPM) tools. This product can be used together with CheckMate® VMB-F. It is also suitable for organic production.
Suterra formulates and synthesizes pheromone ourselves in our state-of-the-art facility in Bend, Oregon. All of Suterra’s mating disruption products are harmless to all other living organisms and beneficial insects.
