CYD-X HP Codling Moth Virus (6 Ounce) (OID COMM)

CYD-X HP Codling Moth Virus (6 Ounce) (OID COMM)

Biological Control of Codling Moths

CYD-X-HP 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-HP 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-HP 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-HP, depending on dosage and ambient temperature. Death may occur more quickly at higher temperatures and higher dosage.

    Use Instructions

    See product use instructions for complete information. CYD-X-HP must be mixed with water and applied as a spray to fruit and foliage.

    Use non-chlorinated water at a pH near 7.0 in the spray-tank mix. See label for quantity of product to add to your sprayer. Spray just enough to wet all leaves and fruit with minimal run-off or dripping. Total coverage depends on the size of trees to be sprayed and the type of sprayer used.

    Apply CYD-X first in late spring or early summer, when eggs of the first generation of codling moth begin to hatch. For maximum effectiveness, apply CYD-X at least twice during each larval generation. When pest pressure persists, additional applications may be necessary in mid- to late summer. Consult your local Cooperative Extension Service for more information about the best timing of codling moth sprays.

    For best results, CYD-X-HP should be refrigerated when not in use and should last at least a year. Non refrigerated product should be used within 3 months. Bioactivity of the virus can be degraded by exposure to high temperatures ( > 90F) for long periods. Always store CYD-X-HP in its original bottle in a cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight. Shake well before use. CYD-X-HP can also be frozen for extended storage without harm (up to one year).
