SPLATTM (Specialized Pheromone & Lure
Biologically Inert Matrix for the Release of Semiochemicals
Semiochemicals (such as synthetic pheromones) and some pesticides
are volatile compounds which require an appropriate delivery and
dispensing system to optimize and modulate its release in a manner
that offers the best insect attraction in the time period desired.
ISCA possesses a range of technologies that can dispense, optimize
and modulate the semiochemical and/or pesticide release in mating
disruption or attract & kill pest management programs.
SPLAT (Specialized Pheromone & Lure Application Technology)
has numerous advantages over current semiochemical controlled
- Provides long term rain and UV protection for the pheromone
and/or active ingredient.
- Biologically inert and bio-degradable matrix.
- Ability to vary release rates and duration from weeks to
months with one application depending on the size of the SPLAT
dollop, and in many cases, achieve season long control with one
- Amorphous and flowable quality allows for many types of
application methods: spatula, caulking gun, metered backpack
sprayer, tractor, aircraft, etc.
- Possible to develop formulations to target more than one pest
with formulation mix of desired pheromones, active ingredients
SPLAT has proven its effectiveness in mating disruption, lure and
attract & kill programs for many insect pests (such as codling
moth, oriental fruit moth, pink bollworm, gypsy moth, brazilian
apple leafroller), and ISCA welcomes collaborative efforts to
develop new SPLAT applications.
