Magggoty Apples? Codling Moth trap!(M53)



Magggoty Apples? Codling Moth trap!(M53)

A trap to reduce 'maggoty' apple problems (M53)

There's nothing worse than biting into an apple and finding it has been attacked by codling moth (a tunnel inside the fruit, filled with brown gunge and the pest's dropping...and sometimes the maggot-like critter too!)
Use a pheromone trap to lure the male moths to a sticky end...so reducing their numbers and the number of fertile eggs that the females lay.  The adult female moth lays her eggs in the apple blossom, the eggs hatch into the maggot-like grubs which then tunnel inside the fruit, wrecking it and making it very unappetising! So, by reducing the number of fertile eggs, you reduce the number of 'maggoty' apples. Simple and not harmful to beneficial insects etc (the pheromone 'lure' inside the trap is only appealing to the male codling moth)
Use one trap per 5 trees. 
Each trap comes with sufficient pheromone lure and sticky sheet for one season, next year you can just replace the lure and sticky sheet (see separate entry), no need to buy a whole new trap. Refills are available (M541)
