MalEx combines the best aspects of two technologies to provide insect pest control that is effective, selective and residue free.
Each 50 microlitre droplet contains a minute amount of potent knock down insecticide and a synthetic version of the pheromone released by the female of the targeted species to attract, or ‘call’, a mate.
The attractant and insecticide are combined in a UV-absorbing carrier material that provides a slow, uniform release of the powerful pheromone. Male moths are inevitably attracted to the small droplets of MalEx with which they attempt to mate. Any contact with the product kills or disables them, thus preventing mating and subsequent egg-laying and larval infestation.
MalEx uses pheromones as they were intended to be used, to attract males. They are not confused or overwhelmed. Instead, they are simply and biologically attracted to the droplet where the insecticide component of MalEx does its job and takes them out of the mating cycle.
MalEx application methods:
Tube Applicator: comes with a manually operated calibrated pump that deposits individual droplets metered in an amount appropriate for the specific target species. Droplets may be placed on leaves, bark, supporting rope or wires above rows, even plant stakes placed beside the infestation area.
Mechanical Application: from a tractor, airplane, or helicopter.
