Tanglefoot Red Sphere Traps
Apple maggots are a type of fruit fly that attack apples, blueberries, hawthorn, plums, pears, and cherries. Apple maggot flies are smaller than a housefly and appear throughout the summer.
These traps are the answer to wormy apples, cherries, pears, plums, blueberries, and more. These red ball traps the apple maggot flies before the deposit their eggs. The flies are tricked into thinking the traps are apples and once they land they are stuck. Traps should be placed in mid-April, before apple fruiting and left out until harvest. Use minimum of one trap per tree for trapping. Use one trap per 5 to 10 acres for monitoring.
