CYD-X HP Biological Insecticide is an aqueous suspension concentrate biological insecticide from Certis USA.

It is also known as the codling moth granulosis virus.
CYD-X HP Biological Insecticide contains a naturally occurring virus that infects and kills larvae of the codling moth (Cydia pomonella). This virus is very host specific. It does not infect beneficial insects, fish, wildlife, livestock or humans.
CYD-X HP must be eaten by the larvae to be effective so complete spray coverage is very important. Since CYD-X HP is most effective against small, newly hatched larvae, an early scouting program to determine early infestations is recommended.
