CODLING MOTH FACTS
Codling moths are worldwide pests that damage the fruits of apple, pear and quince during the insect’s worm stage. Codling moths can infest every apple in an orchard if left unchecked. The worms burrow through the fruit, leaving brown frass and tunnels. The resulting fruit is often unsuitable for eating. Codling moth worms hatch from eggs laid by female moths on fruit. Moths emerge 3 to 5 times a year (depending on climate) soon after bud break. The Codling Moth trap pinpoints these flight times by capturing the male moths. Applying appropriate controls at these flight times help prevent worm damage to fruit. Using Codling moths traps will reduce populations.
Attach hanger. Grasp trap by top and bottom flaps. Pull apart to form trap (do not touch glue). Open lure packet. Do not touch lure with hands as codling moths may become attracted to you; use gloves. Place one lure on the inside, upper surface of the trap. Tuck bottom corners of trap. Place the trap 1 to 2 feet inside the middle of the canopy of your fruit or nut tree. Place traps in trees 1 or 2 weeks before bud break. Check traps every 2 to 3 days. Pursue additional treatment to control infestations, if needed. Dispose of traps when full of insects, or every 4 weeks.
