Exosect to launch Exosex CM in Greece
UK pest control company Exosect (Winchester, Hampshire) is to launch its pheromone product, Exosex CM, in Greece. The product will be distributed by Swiss company Intrachem Bio’s Greek subsidiary, Intrachem Hellas (Athens), for the control of codling moths ( Cydia pomonella) as part of an IPM system. Exosect has already worked with Intrachem businesses in the development of Exosex CM. Its Italian subsidiary, Intrachem Bio Italia (Milan), began trials on the product in Italy in 2005 ( Agrow No 493, p 6) and distributes it there. Exosex CM was first approved in the US and the UK in 2004 ( Agrow No 470, p 8). It has since been launched in South Africa, New Zealand, Belgium and most recently in Italy ( Agrow passim).
