Research Institution
In areas where Oriental Beetle (OrB) is a pest, growers interested in producing blueberries for the organic market don't have a viable control solution. Here we propose to develop a revolutionary tool for the control of OrB at the adult stage: our Specialized Pheromone & Lure Application Technology (SPLAT) is a long lasting, flowable amorphous formulation for the controlled release of (Z)-7-tetradecen-2-one, the major component of the sex pheromone of OrB.
