CYD-X granulovirus and Coddling Moth

Anybody out there tried Cyd-X for coddling Moth control, how about Surround WP or Spinosad?

Spinosad is commonly used in NC on apples for coddling moth control...even some "conventional" apple growers use it.

The biggest drawback/complaint is having to re-apply it during the heavier parts of the season every 10-14 days, but it's quite effective. Small orchard growers around here love it.

Well doggone it, Cyd-X is not labeled for sale in my state, figgrs!!! Looks like I'Il be hosing down the trees with a Spinosad+oil mix many times this growing season. On the other hand, I could just bag'm all, that is 100% effective if the bags are applied early enough. Been there, done that and it sure is handy knowing that I'm done with spraying once the bags are on. Of course, the bags aren't cheap and are a pain in the posterior to put on. C'est la vie!
