See product use instructions for complete information. CYD-X® 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. Mix 1 tsp of CYD-X® per 5 gallons of water and apply directly to each tree using a hand pump sprayer or other suitable spray equipment. 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®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 ( > 90°F) for long periods. Always store CYD-X® in its original bottle in a cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight. Shake well before use. CYD-X® can also be frozen for extended storage without harm.
