PINE T PRO BALL
Mating disruption pheromone against the pine processionary moth (Thaumetopoea pityocampa).
Composition: (Z) -13-Hexadecen-11-yn-1-yl acetate (4% w/w), formulated as an aqueous emulsion in oil (EO) in biodegradable gelatin shootable balls (paintball type).
Where to use it?
Recommended in all types of pine plantations and other conifers (alignments, formations, groups, groves, single tree, etc.), in urban and suburb areas, parks and gardens, recreational and sports areas, golf courses and others, to make difficult the encounters between adult forms (females and males) of processionary moth (Thaumetopoea pityocampa) in order to minimize their mating, and thereby reducing the populations of subsequent generations of these stinging caterpillars.
How to use it?
It is applied by “paintball” markers, localized on the south side of the trees. Dosage must be adjusted depending on the type of formation and the pest level (max.: 400 balls/Ha). A single annual application covers the entire flight season of the adult populations.
