Our homemade Codling Moth traps worked like a charm! This season we harvested of beautiful crop of pest-free, blemish- free apples. No pesticides of any kind were used. And no extra money was spent due to being able to use materials we had on-hand already. Look at these apples! Aren't they gorgeous!
In case you missed what we did, here's a quick recap: http://stableroadhomestead.blogspot.com/2013/03/making-codling-moth-traps.html
If you're growing apples or other fruit or nuts which Codling Moths like to infest, try using these traps next season. Be sure to set them out right at bud-break in the spring.
Question for you:
Why is the apple harvest early this year? Our Granny Smith apples are ripe now and ready for picking. Usually we harvest "Granny" in September/October. If you have the answer, please post a comment to share what you know.
