Proven Results for Superior CRS Protection

We’re different from your average mating disruption solution. Our Variable Rate Mating Disruption (VRMD) means the busier the pests in your orchard, the more pheromones we release.

  • Timed pheromone release when your crop is most vulnerable: No more wasted pheromones — get targeted protection when the pest is active and during male flights.
  • Better late-season control: Late-season pheromone coverage reduces crawlers for effective year-over-year population control.
  • Research-backed results: The research we completed in 2021 showed that Semios CRS mating disruption provided reduced crawler counts, little to no twig infestation, and reduced fruit damage when compared to alternative, hand-applied products.
