The Tanglefoot Codling Moth Trap Kit includes everything you need to capture the leading cause of “wormy” apples. Once in place, insects are lured inside, encounter the sticky surfaces, and become stuck without any means of escape. Best of all, this action is strictly mechanical – NO pesticides or harmful chemicals are used.
• Proven effective for apples, plums, pears and crabapples
• Pesticide free — NO chemical residues
• Each lure lasts up to 8 weeks!
• Includes hangers and a special tool for removing insects
• Used for years in backyard orchards!
Available size: 2-Pack (enough for one average-size tree or two dwarf trees)
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Easy to use. Simply place the specially formulated lure, which is protected in a sealed pouch, inside and hang when trees are blooming. If you have several trees, hang them around the perimeter where insects are most likely to enter.
The #1 pest of apples in North America! Adult moths (3/4″ wingspan) are grayish-brown in color and have a darker colored patch on the tip of each fore-wing. The destructive larvae are pinkish white maggots (1/2″ long) that bore through apples directly to the core.
