The Solution: Pheromone Traps
A lure containing a sex attractant (pheromone) given off by the female moth attracts male moths to their death in the pheromone trap. Without male moths there will be no maggots.
In mid-May, one trap should be put out for every three apple or plum trees.
The codling moth and plum moth pheromone lures are specific to these moths and do not attract beneficial insects or bees.
