Vitax Apple Maggot Trap
The Apple Maggot Monitoring Trap is perfect for tackling both apple and pear fruit moth damage.
Maggot damage in apples and pears is mainly caused by caterpillars of the codling moth. Females tend to lay eggs on the leaves and fruit, which hatch after 10-14 days. The caterpillars then bore into the fruitlets and feed on the fruit in early summer.
Each monitoring trap covers between three to five trees, luring the male moths and enabling gardeners to access the trap and treat with a suitable insecticide.
Apple Maggot Monitoring Trap:
- Contains one pheromone lure
- Has a strong corrugated trap with hanger
- Separate refill pack available containing one lure
Male moths tend to fly and mate on warm nights, so the trap is best used from mid-May to the end of July.
Easy to use, simply unfold the sticky insert and place it in the base of the trap. Place the monitoring lure on the middle of the trap and hang it from a tree.
The trap will monitor moths for five average size trees up to 12 metres apart.

Who Will Deliver My Order?

For orders between 2.1kg and 100kg will be delivered by either Parcelforce or DHL*
For orders over 100kg will be delivered by Pallet Force Network*
*The time it takes to deliver your goods will be down to the delivery partners ability to reach your post code area and them actually being able to deliver the order but if you have not received your goods within 10 days of ordering, please make contact with us immediately in order for us to investigate the problem.
Are There Any Areas That You Cannot Deliver To?
