Stop codling moths ruining your apple crop by positioning Codling Moth Traps in the spring i.e. between May and the end of July. Have you ever bitten into an apple and instead of a nice crunchy apple, discovered a grub and a rotten core? This is the larvae of the codling moth, which feeds on the inside of the apple before burrowing its way out to pupate. By positioning Codling Moth Traps, it stops the moths laying their eggs on or near the developing fruit by catching them in these effective Codling Moth Traps. Hang Codling Moth Traps in your fruit trees in mid-May before the moths emerge. These simple and easy to use traps contain a pheromone-laced lure, which attracts the male moths and a sticky trap, which catches them before they can fertilise the females, so no eggs are produced. Hang 1 trap per 5 trees and the 2 lures included will be enough for 1 season HOWEVER, in some seasons, moth activity can carry on into August and a 3rd refill may be needed. These traps are designed to be re-usable, so simply insert a new refill each year. These traps are pesticide free and will not harm beneficial insects.
Each Codling Moth Trap includes the trap itself, 2 x sticky inserts and 2 x lures, which is enough for 1 season. The sticky insert is unfolded and placed sticky side up, in the base of the trap, The pheromone lure is then removed from its foil sachet and positioned laid in the centre of the sticky insert. After 5 weeks replace the sticky insert and lure with the 2nd set included giving 10 weeks protection.
