Growing Success Apple Maggot Monitoring Trap Refill Kit
Pesticide free lure trap refills
Pesticide free, pheromone lure attractant refill kit for codling moth in apple & pear trees.
The main cause of maggot damage in apples and pears is due to caterpillars produced by the codling moth. In winter female moths lay eggs in trees. The eggs hatch out into caterpillars which feed on fruit in early summer.
The monitoring trap allows gardeners to assess the infestation problem and treat with a suitable insecticide if necessary.
