CYD-X® contains an insecticidal baculoviruis (Cydia pomonella granulovirus) that is specific to larvae of the codling moth (Cydia pomonella). Because of this specificity to the codling moth, CYD-X® provides a unique opportunity for biological control of codling moth with NO harmful effects on humans, domestic animals, wildlife, beneficial insects and plants.
Mode of Action: CYD-X® is a biological insecticide, which must be ingested by larvae in order to be effective. Upon ingestion, the viral occlusion bodies (OBs) dissolve in the larval midgut and release infectious virions. These enter the cells lining the digestive tract and replicate in the nuclei of those cells. The resulting progeny virus infect other tissues within the larva, which stops feeding and eventually dies from massive viral infection. After death, the larva disintegrates, releasing billions of new OBs, which may infect other codling moth larvae upon ingestion. Death occurs 3 to 7 days after ingestion of CYD-X®, depending on dosage and ambient temperature. Death may occur more quickly at higher temperatures and higher dosage.
