Plum Fruit Moth Trap Pheromone Lure Refill
This pheromone lure attracts male plum fruit moths and traps them without the use of chemicals.
Grapholita (cydia) funebrana is a common pest of plums, damsons and greengages. The female moth lays eggs which, once hatched, burrow into the fruit. These larvae or caterpillars eat the plums from within.
This is replacement lure, a refill for the trap which is sturdy, so lasts longer than paper traps and is protected from the wind. As the lure attracts male plum fruit moths, eggs laid by females are reduced. Only one lure is required each season and one plum fruit moth trap will cover up to 16 trees.
Place the trap near plum trees from early May when moths start flying. Remove the pheromone lure from its sleeve and put it inside the space allocated in the trap with a black cover. Fill the trap with water and mild detergent.
- Put the traps in place from early May until the end of October
- Hang the trap from fruit tree
- Put a water/detergent mix in the clear plastic trap
- One trap will cover an areas of up to 16 trees
- Replace the pheromone lure every 12 months
- Only the correct pheromone lure should be used within this trap
