About apple maggots - they are a type of small fruit fly that attacks apples, blueberries, hawthorn, plums, pears and cherries, causing extensive fruit damage that renders the fruit useless.

The fly is smaller than a housefly and appears throughout the summer. Most fruits are attacked by flies that lay their eggs during late spring to early summer. Traps should be placed in mid-April, before fruiting Note: Apple maggots are present but are not yet a significant problem in California. Codling moths are much more common. The damage is easy to distinguish. Apple maggots riddle the fruit, codling moths make an entry and exit hole.

  • Kit contains 3 plastic spheres with hangers
  • Sticky glue
  • 3 one-season, controlled-release lures
  • Additional lures and sticky glue can be purchased separately
