Maggot barriers are a brand new concept to protect apples, pears and Asian pears from infestations of the apple maggot fly and codling moth. One easy application to fruitlets early in season is all that is needed. Eliminates use of plastic or paper bags, traps or pesticides. 144 maggot barriers/bag. Made of 100% earth tone nylon.
We have used these bags for about 5 years and have had wonderful success keeping the apples worm-free. I like the idea that we are not spraying chemicals on our food. We only have 3 dwarf trees so the energy/time expenditure is not overwhelming.Review by hatemaggots (on 2/25/14)
used 300 last year, not a single pear or apple had any bugs! When u apply the sox, u thin the surrounding fruit, getting much larger fruit at harvest. A lot of work, but way better than sprayReview by suchaluckydoc (on 2/19/12)
We used these bags last year and found them very effective. A bit of trouble to put on, but it's a one-time expenditure and we' had beautiful, tasty organic apples! The year prior to their use all our apples were ruined by the apple maggot.Review by greenthumb (on 7/9/11)
