Alpha Scents currently offers Attract & Kill technology with the product MalEx Shootborer. MalEx CLM for Citrus Leaf Miner is currently under review by the EPA and is expected to be commercially available in Spring 2016.
Additionally, Alpha Scents has a robust development program in place that is currently evaluating and developing Attract & Kill products for other key insects and crops.
HOW IT WORKS
Each 50 microliter droplet contains a minute amount of a knock-down pesticide and a synthetic version of a female pheremone of the target species to attract the male.The attractant and insecticide are combined in a UV-absorbing carrier material that provides a slow, uniform release of the pheromone.
Male moths are attracted to the small droplets of MalEx and attempt to mate. Any contact with the product kills or disables them, thus preventing mating and subsequent egg-laying and larval infestation.Precise placement minimizes or eliminates contact with any unintended targets.
