Help and advice

Customer Question - Controlling Plum Moth

Q. "Which nematodes will work with Plum Moth?" from Claire

A. Thanks for the message and because the egg is laid in the blossom and then the fruit develops around it, any kind of spray will not work, so nematodes will not work. The only solution is to use a pheromone trap to trap the moths before they mate and lay eggs. These Plum Moth Traps should be positioned from mid-May onwards depending on how warm the weather is. After 5 weeks replace the sticky pad and lure with the 2nd one included so it is in position for a total of 10 weeks. CLICK HERE to find out more.
