Codling Moth – Facts for Fancy Fruit

Codling Moth

I continue to catch low numbers of codling moths in my pheromone traps. As I explained in a previous FFF article, in the lower Midwest, we don’t have distinct generations. Out moth catches seldom go down to zero, so there is always a threat for codling moth. Apple growers should be sure that they are including an insecticide in their cover sprays that will control codling moth, as well as any other pests that may be causing a problem.
