WHEN TO USE THE TRAP
In most seasons moths fly and mate on warm nights from late May until the end of July, although in some years activity may continue until well into August. In this case a 3rd lure and sticky insert may be needed.
HOW TO USE THE TRAP
The trap should be assembled as in the diagrams (on the back of the pack). The sticky insert should be unfolded and placed sticky side up, in the base of the trap. The lure should be removed from the foil sachet and laid in the centre of the sticky insert. Ensure that the end flaps are secured. THE LURE WILL RELEASE SCENT FROM WHEN THE SACHET IS OPENED - DO NOT OPEN SACHET UNTIL THE LURE IS NEEDED.
In a garden one trap should monitor up to 5 average size trees with a range of 15m (50ft)of the trap. It should be hung at around head height on the windward side of the tree (or group of trees).
After 5 week replace the sticky insert and lure, with the second set provided. Inspect the trap regularly. If you are catching more the 15 moths per week a suitable spray should be applied a week later, we recommend Resolva Bug Killer.

Help prevent damage to pears and apples with this handy trap. The major cause of maggot damage to apples and pears is the caterpillar of the Codling Moth.
It uses the pheromone scent of the female moth to attract and catch male moths. It's pesticide free and completely safe for beneficial insects. And the restricted opening prevents birds being caught.
The traps should be hung in the fruit tree in early May. Refills available, traps can be reused. Remove the trap by the beginning of September and dispose of the lure and sticky insert. Clean and store trap.See Full Description +
