Meet the Puffer®

Puffer® is used on more acres than any other aerosol mating disruption solution in the world.

Suterra invented and perfected aerosol mating disruption. Puffer® delivers a consistent release of pheromone that stops damage from the pests all night long, all season long, regardless of weather conditions.

"Not only have we seen a reduction in our trap counts, we have seen up to 25% damage reduction."

Puffer 25th Anniversary

Welcome to the most rugged and reliable aerosol mating disruption on the market.

 The Puffer® is the world’s most popular pheromone device for a reason. It delivers the highest quality Suterra pheromone, with the chemistry growers trust to deliver lower damage from Navel Orangeworm, Codling Moth, Oriental Fruit Moth, and other agricultural pests.

Deploy anytime.

Thanks to its internal temperature sensor, the device puffs only when the pest is active, optimizing the pheromone emission. The thermostat is pest and time-zone specific ensuring your Puffer® lasts all season long, no matter when you deploy. Take advantage of this flexible feature and capitalize on labor availability.


Most Trusted

The world's most popular aerosol pheromone device is easy to use.

One flip of the red power switch turns the device on and a test puff will occur immediately. The device then moves into its pre-programmed cycle for overnight operation specific to the pest and time zone. This one-button operation makes deployment fast and easy.

Use the same hooks. Simply turn it on and hang it up!



The single, external power switch turns the device on and initiates a test puff. There's no assembly or installation required.


Weighing 60% less than previous generations of emitters, Suterra’s hardware is easy to handle in the field for fast deployment and more sustainable shipping.


Each device arrives pre-programmed to automatically provide optimal timing and precise dosing for each time zone and pest.


With a visible EPA label, the Puffer® is worker-friendly and easy to spot in foliage.
