Technical Abstract: The use of the potent and selective kairomone, DA2313 to directly control codling moth has been investigated during the past two years. The original approach was to incorporate this compound into a paste droplet. These studies demonstrated some effectiveness but we found that moths, especially females, rarely touched the droplets. More recent studies are focusing on the development of a bait station that is topically treated with a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide. Optimization studies are continuing to develop a highly effective bait station which will be tested this season.
