The codling moth granulose virus works exclusively over the digesting organs of the larvae of the codling moth and has no contact action. Hence Madex 3 must be eaten by the larvae of the codling moth. The infected larvae stop eating after the intake of the virus and do not cause any more damage. Depending upon the virus amount intake the larvae die within few days or in the course of their further development.
