    Description

    LastCall™ (LC), an attract and kill bait matrix, was deployed for the management of shoot boring moths in pine plantations and seed orchards. The targeted moths were the Western pine shoot borer, Eucosma sonomana (WPSB), European pine shoot moth, Rhyacionia buoliana (EPSM), Ponderosa pine tip moth, Rhyacionia zozana (PPTM), and Nantucket pine tip moth, Rhyacionia frustrana (NPTM) in pine plantations and seed orchards. Attract and kill technology very selectively removes male moths of the target species from the ecosystem with negligible impact on non-target organisms. Baits combine the selectivity of pheromone (only 0.21 g/ha, compared to 3.5-20 g/ha for mating disruption) with the rapid toxicity of insecticides (only 7.92 g/ha, compared to 500-800 g/ha for conventional sprays). This bait retains the insecticide within a hydrophobic matrix that precludes run-off or drift, and thus prevents ecosystem contamination and damage.
