Codling moths are worldwide pests that damage the fruits of apple, pear
and quince during the insect's worm stage. Codling moth can infest
every apple in an orchard if left unchecked. The worms burrow through
the fruit, leaving brown frass and tunnels. The resulting fruit is
often unsuitable for eating.
Codling moth worms hatch out of eggs which are laid on the fruit by
female moths. The moths emerge 3 to 5 times a year (depending on
climate) starting soon after bud break. Controlling the moths during
these key blight times, before the eggs are laid, can effectively
prevent worm damage to fruit. The Oak Stump Codling Moth Trap
pinpoints these flight times by capturing the male moths which fly at
the same time as the female moths. Apply appropriate controls at these
Attach hanger. Grasp trap by top and bottom flaps. Pull apart to form
trap (do not touch glue). Open lure packet; place one lure on the

Hang the trap in your fruit or nut tree. Place the trap 1 to 2 feet
inside the tree canopy. Place traps in trees 1 or 2 weeks before bud
break, in early spring. Check for moths every 2 to 3 days and apply
appropriate treatments to control moths. Recycle or dispose of traps
when full of insects, or at least every 4 weeks.
