Based on ISCA's Emulsion Controlled Release TechnologyTM
), SPLAT LBAM HD combines nature-identical light brown apple moth (LBAM) pheromone with SPLAT to control the light brown apple moth, Epiphyas postvittana
, using the environmentally friendly mating disruption
strategy. Unlike wide spectrum insecticides which may impact beneficial insects (such as bees) or may cause insecticide resistance build-up, SPLAT LBAM HD is species specific and does not cause resistance issues. LBAM is also resistant to many foliar insecticide treatments since the damage-causing larvae are protected inside the fruit.
SPLAT LBAM HD Organic belongs to the family of organic products called OIKOS TM and is the result of only a slight change to the original SPLAT LBAM HD formulation. This formulation was created in order to comply with EPA and USDA organic use standards.

SPLAT LBAM, packaged in caulking tubes for convenient application, is optimized for use in nurseries and small areas of less than 5 acres (bulk material is available for larger areas). LBAM monitoring using species specific pheromone trap should be a part of your SPLAT LBAM HD mating disruption program. Please contact us, or your extension entomologist or PCO to learn more about SPLAT mating disruption.
Suggested Schedule: Apply SPLAT LBAM just prior to first growth flush in the Spring. Monitor LBAM populations and consider additional applications if trap catch thresholds are met. Timing can vary by environmental conditions. Consult your pest control advisor for help to establish damage thresholds and determine application timing.
