MANAGEMENT OF ORIENTAL FRUIT MOTH IN APPLES USING DIFFERENT PHEROMONE DISPENSER TECHNOLOGIES AND

DIFFERENT PHEROMONE DISPENSER TECHNOLOGIES AND
IN-SEASON FRUIT DAMAGE INSPECTION

This trial was conducted in mixed plantings of fresh and processing apples on five
commercial farms in Wayne, Orleans and Niagara Counties, NY. A low-density pheromone
"packet" dispenser, a sprayable plastic micro-flake, and a standard "twist-tie" dispenser were
compared for efficacy in managing the internal-feeding Lepidoptera species, oriental fruit moth
(OFM), Grapholita molesta, when applied against the 2nd and 3rd generations of this pest.
Apple varieties included Gala, Rome, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Ida Red, Mutsu, Ben
Davis, 20-Ounce and McIntosh.
Materials & Methods
In 2005, OFM management programs were tested in five "moderate-risk" commercial
orchards, using three different pheromone dispensing technologies, as well as a modified fruit
sampling procedure to assess the need and timing for special pesticide sprays directed against the
2nd and subsequent generation of this species. The pheromone treatments used were: 1)
Isomate-M plastic ties; 2) MSTRS OFM high-yield, low-density pheromone packets; 3) Hercon
