Product Description

Mating disruption is a tool that involves the overstimulation of Helicoverpa armigera male pests with deployment of pheromones via Heli Protect® dispensers, causing males to follow “false pheromone trails”, therefore interfering with mate finding behavior.

Using Heli Protect® is an environmentally sound method to protect crops that is safe for humans and pets.

The carrier is a MD dispenser that contains active substances, that ensures a uniform release of a pheromone.

When to use

Prior to the emergence of the first generation, it is recommended to install 300 Heli Protect® dispensers, each with an expected field life of 160-180 days.
For an effective control strategy, utilize 2-4 Delta traps per hectare along with Helicoverpa armigera lures for monitoring purposes and early detection of infestations.

With optimal weather conditions (from 20°C – 35°C) MD dispensers can be used for 20-25 weeks once opened.

How to use

  • We recommend to monitor pest emergence by deploying 2-4 pheromone traps per hectare, as Delta or/and EC Bucket with Helicoverpa armigera lures. Each trap should be placed 1-1,5 m above the ground. By graphing the total numbers of the pest caught in your traps on each monitoring day, you can determine the level of pest pressure.
  • Use gloves to take out the Heli Protect® from its foil, right before it will be deployed.
  • Place the MD dispenser following the instructions.
  • Regular, careful monitoring for signs of crop damage is imperative to ensure that your site is protected. This can help you determine if additional control measures are needed and the best timing for them. We suggest using Delta or/and EC Bucket traps as additional pest management tools.


Place the MD Dispensers at the alternating heights of 0,5 m and 1,5 m, keeping them at least 5-6 metres apart.

300 Heli Protect® dispensers should be deployed for every hectare.



Dispensers should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from sunlight. For conservation of dispensers for longer periods of time it is recommended to refrigerate the product, thus extending their expiration date to 24 months.


Replace dispensers every 20-25 weeks. Please keep in mind that the disposal of the old dispensers should be done away from the monitoring/MD treatment area, to avoid interference with the pest management process.


Handle carefully. Even though this substance is not harmful to humans and the environment, it is advised to use gloves when handling the product and wash hands thoroughly after handling the dispensers.
