What is Pheromone Opogona?

Pheromones are specific fragrances that you can use to attract insects of a specific species. These are often fragrances that the females of that insect species use to attract males. The pheromone was copied in the laboratory and put in a capsule. When you use the pheromone capsule in the greenhouse; pheromone will gradually evaporate from the capsule. It takes about six week for the pheromone to completely evaporate. If you keep the capsules in the freezer you can store them for a long time. No evaporation takes place in the freezer. Pheromone Opogona is specific for luring males of the banana moth Opogona sacchari. Other species are not attracted to this pheromone.

How does Pheromone Opogona work?

The pheromone for the banana moth is best used in combination with a delta trap with glue plates. Adult male moths flying around will be attracted to the pheromone and will be caught on the glue plate of the trap. With this catching system you will not be able to catch all moths flying in the greenhouse. It is mainly intended to detect whether and; if so; how many adult moths are present. However; the more traps you deploy; the greater the number of moths that will be caught. By catching the males; the plague will slightly decrease.

How to combine Pheromone Opogona

Pheromone Opogona can only be used in combination with a delta trap with glue plates. You cannot combat the caterpillars of the banana moth with this product. You can use the product CAPSANEM for this. CAPSANEM contains nematodes that can be dissolved in water. The nematode solution can be poured over the soil or sprayed over the damaged plants.
