    SPLAT® (Specialized Pheromone and Lure Application Technology) emulsion is a unique controlled-release technology that can be adapted to dispense and protect a wide variety of compounds from degradation, including semiochemicals, pesticides, and phagostimulants, in diverse environments. ISCA Technologies, Inc., in collaboration with colleagues in academia, government, and industry, has been developing SPLAT®-based insect control products for close to a decade. This chapter provides an overview of SPLAT® technology and existing commercial formulations and describes ongoing efforts to develop new SPLAT® mating disruption, attract-and-kill, and repellent products for pest control in agricultural and forest environments.
