Plum Fruit Moth Trap

The major cause of maggot’s damage to plums and gages is the caterpillar of the Plum Fruit Moth. Control of this pest in the garden is very difficult using insecticides unless they are applied shortly after egg laying. The trap uses the pheromone scent of the female moth to attract and catch male moth. This provides a warning as to if and when control measures are needed.

When to use:
In most seasons’ moths fly and mate on warm nights from early June to until the middle of August. The trap should be placed in the garden soon after the middle of May. 1 trap should monitor up to 5 average size trees with a range of 15m/50ft of the trap. It should be hung at around head height on the windward side of the tree. After 5 weeks replace the sticky insert and lure with the second one provided.

Made in the UK, endorsed by RHS.
