Apple Maggot Traps
The BioCare Apple Maggot Trap is designed to trap the adult fruit flies of the damaging apple maggot larvae with a pheromone lure attached to a sticky trap. These fruit flies commonly attack apples, blueberries, hawthorn, pears, plums, and cherries by laying their eggs in the fruit during late spring to early summer, which then mature into the apple maggots. Traps should be placed early in the growing season either before budding occurs or shortly thereafter. Lures last about 20 weeks (roughly one season).
