Zeuzera Protect® plant protection product against (Zeuzera pyrina) leopard moth. Mating disruption is a tool that involves the overstimulation of Zeuzera pyrina male pests with deployment of pheromones via Zeuzera Protect® dispensers, causing males to follow “false pheromone trails”, therefore interfering with mate finding behaviour.

Product Description

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

Using Zeuzera 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 Zeuzera Protect® dispensers, each with an expected field life of 100-120 days.
For an effective control strategy, utilize 2-4 Delta traps per hectare along with Zeuzera pyrina lures for monitoring purposes and early detection of infestations.

Carrier

MD dispenser baited with pheromone composition. 

Longevity

With optimal weather conditions (from 20°C – 35°C) MD dispensers can be used for 14-16 weeks once opened.

How to use

  • We recommend monitoring pest emergence by deploying 2-4 Delta traps per hectare, with Zeuzera pyrina 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 Zeuzera 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 your site is protected. This can help you determine if additional control measures are needed and the best timing for them. 

Positioning

Place the MD Dispensers at the alternating heights of 1,5 m and 2 m, keeping them at least 5-6 metres apart. 300 Zeuzera Protect® dispensers should be deployed for every hectare.

Storing

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.

Replacement

Replace dispensers every 14-16 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.

Precautions

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.

Suitable Items

Delta Plastic trap White (with insert)

Delta Plastic Trap White is a great monitoring trap that allows to make a quick estimation of Lepidoptera pests population in orchards, greenhouses, vineyards etc. This trap is easy to assemble and use, and is both durable and cost-efficient.

A target insect lure must be used within the trap, to attract the pests into the trap to land on the adhesive surface of the sticky insert, that is provided together with the trap.

Zeuzera pyrina lures

Zeuzera pyrina lure is a component of an insect trapping device, that uses pheromones to lure leopard moths into a trap.

The lure, in the form of the rubber dispenser, containing Zeuzera pyrina pheromone, must be placed in a pheromone trap to be fully functional (traps can be bought separately or in kits with lures).

Using such pheromone lures is an economic, environmentally sound approach to either monitor or trapp these pests.

The lures in the traps must be replaced every 4-6 weeks to keep attraction rates high.

Shelf life - up to 2 years (optimum conditions).
