A new pilot program by the Plant and Food Research in New Zealand is releasing sterile coddling moths into apple orchards (via drones) to reduce the pest population.

According to Plant and Food Research Scientist, Dr. Jim Walker, "within two seasons we expect the coddling moth population to be eliminated from these test orchards." This sterile insect technique shows significant potential for the apple industry and future management of pest insect populations around the world.
