Plum Maggot Monitoring Trap
Refills available to buy separately
Pheromone attractant lure that is pesticide free & suitable for use in organic gardening.
The main cause of maggot damage in plums, damsons and gages is due to caterpillars produced by the plum fruit 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.
|Application Rate||Unfold the sticky insert, open the sachet and place the monitoring lure in the middle of the sticky trap. Put the insert in the trap, sticky side up. Hang the trap at head height on the windward side of the tree. The trap will monitor moths for three average size trees up to 12 months apart. Inspect the traps regularly. If more than 12 moths are trapped per week, treat with a suitable insecticide.|
