NoMate OFM Spirals are oriental fruit moth mating disruptors; they work by interfering with communication between adults to prevent mating. This disruption in their mating process means fewer fertile eggs, decreasing the chances of subsequent larval infestation. With the reduction of larvae there is less need for conventional pesticides.
These easy-to-use spirals (simply wrap them around a stem or branch) only work on the flying adult moths and only stop them from reproducing; they do not kill the larvae. Please refer to our Oriental Fruit Moth page for information on how to round-out your control by tackling the other life stages.
This Product Controls These Pests or Diseases: Oriental Fruit Moth (Grapholita molesta).
How To Apply:
- Open the container just prior to application. Unpackage and remove only the amount of spirals to be used immediately. Reseal partially used bags and return them to cold storage while awaiting later use.
- NoMate OFM Spiral is applied directly to the tree, bush or vine by wrapping the spiral around the stems or branches.
- Apply the product to the upper 1/3 portion of the canopy whenever possible.
- Place spirals at least 1-2 feet within the radius of the canopy. For maximum efficiency, it may be necessary to increase the density of the placement around the perimeter.
Application Rate: 100-400 spirals per acre. Apply 1-3 times per year, or as needed.
