MADEX HP acts very specifically against larvae of the apple codling moth, Cydia pomonella, and the Oriental fruit moth, Grapholita molesta, as a pre-harvest biological insecticide on pome and stone fruit trees including apple, quince, pear, peach, nectarine, apricot, plum, cherry, walnut, almond, pluot, and aprium. After ingestion by the larva, the virus multiplies within the cells of the host insect causing a fatal infection. Rapid virus multiplication within the host cells results in cell destruction and death of the organism, typically within 3-7 days.

Start spraying shortly before larvae hatch from the eggs and before the larvae feed their way into the fruit. In general, one to two sprays per generation are generally sufficient. Due to unfavorable weather conditions, flight, egg laying, and hatching may extend over a longer period of time and up to 6 applications may be needed. Frequent applications at low rates may be more effective than one or two applications at high rates.

Store unused portion of product in the refrigerator at 41°F. If stored properly, the shelf life is 2-3 years.
