Italy OKs Exosect's Exosex CM pheromone

Exosect has been granted approval in Italy for its pheromone product, Exosex CM. The product is for use on pome fruit against codling moths ( Cydia pomonella). It uses Exosect’s patented electrostatic Entostat powder. The powder attaches itself to the male body, overwhelms its receptors and prevents it from finding mates. Italian biopesticide company Intrachem Bio Italia (Grassobbio) will distribute the product. Intrachem believes pheromones will be “the future of codling moth control in [Italian] organic and IPM orchards”. Exosex hopes to extend its partnership with the Italian company.
