• Use for apples, plums, pears and crabapples
• Pesticide free — NO chemical residues!
• Each pheromone lure lasts 4 weeks
• SAFE for organic use
• Used for years in backyard orchards
Available size: 2-Pack (enough for one average-size tree or two dwarf trees)
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Simply place the specially formulated attractant inside the upper glue surface and hang 1-2 weeks before bud break, in spring. If protecting several trees, hang them around the perimeter where insects are most likely to enter.
Adults (3/4″ wingspan) of this common apple pest are gray-brown in color and have a dark patch on the tip of each fore-wing. The larvae are pinkish white maggots (1/2″ long) that burrow through fruit directly to the core, leaving brown frass and tunnels.
For best results, use an integrated approach to pest control. Trichogramma Wasps will destroy the eggs before tunneling larvae can appear.
