Proven answer to worms in apples, cherries & more! Mistaking the Tanglefoot Red Sphere Traps for fruit, apple maggot adults land and become stuck, before eggs can be laid! Each package contains THREE red spheres, hangers and one 8 oz. container of brush-on Tangletrap Insect Trap Coating.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Hang 2-6 traps per tree, depending on size, just as trees are finished blossoming.
For best results, use an integrated approach to pest control. Beneficial Nematodes will kill apple maggot pupae in the ground before flies can emerge.

Slightly smaller than a house fly, adult apple maggots have black bands running across their transparent wings. The larvae (1/4″ long) are white colored maggots that tunnel throughout the flesh of fruit. External signs of maggot infestation appear as pinpricks on the fruit skin.
