Press Release: Exosex CM Approved in a Further Three US States

...Environmental Protection Agencies Of Oregon, Washington and Michigan Join The Growing Number Of States To Approve Exosect’s Codling Moth Mating Disruption System...

Exosect, a leading technology provider of environmentally conscious insect pest control, today announced that a further three US Environmental Protection Agencies (EPAs) in Oregon, Washington and Michigan have granted regulatory approval for Exosex CM. Exosex CM is an innovative auto-confusion technique designed to reduce the damaging effects of the Codling Moth on apple, pear and walnut crops by reducing the population of the Codling Moth through mating disruption. These decisions follow the recent approval of this product by the Californian EPA.

Managing Director of Exosect, John Chandler, comments, “We are very keen to secure the product registration of Exosex CM in a number of US states and are delighted that we are making excellent progress with the approval of these most recent EPAs. It allows us the chance to bring to market a natural system for Codling Moth control, which aims to support the existing Integrated Pest Management process by reducing the dependency on insecticides. We have also applied for organic approval and expect to hear soon.”
