Usage tips

ECODIAN® CARPOCAPSA should be applied before the beginning of the flight of the first generation of Carpocasa (overwintering generation) following the instructions ofr the forecast models provided by the Pyhytosanitary Services and/or coinciding with the very first catches in the Carpocasa pheromone traps. The application of the dispenser from the second generation of Carpocasa (beginning of the second flight) can be carried out if there is no damage to the fruit (oviposition and/or larval penetration) from the chemically controlled first generation. Apply the diffusers ECODIAN® CARPOCAPSA on branches in the upper third of the tree, in shaded areas if possible, taking care to distribute the product evenly and also protect uncovered areas such as fallows, corridors and breeding plants. In order to be effective, the number of spreaders should be sufficient to compete with females in the orchard and minimise the likelihood of males detective their calls. The minimum number of ECODIAN® CARPOCAPSA diffusers required for each application is 2000 per hectare; this number should be increased to 2500/3000 per hectare with hight populations, tall and vigorous plants. In orchards with ECODIAN® CARPOCAPSA, Cydia pomonella should be monitored with CARPO or CARPO+. This allows to monitor the progress of the system by installing the traps before the start of the wintering gneration flights. Checking the traps is very important and must be carried out meticulously. Absence of catches indicates that the disorientation conditions have occourred and persist. The activity of ECODIAN® CARPOCAPSA spreaders is influenced by climatic parametres, under normal conditions lasts about 60/75 days.
