Codling Moth [Cydia pomonella ] can be a destructive pest of apple and pear fruit. The caterpillars part of the Codling moth life cycle bores into the fruit making it un-edible in many cases.

One way to monitor Codling moth populations and help reduce their numbers without using synthetic chemical insecticides is by the use of pheromone traps. The Codling moth pheromone trap uses a long life pheromone lure to bait and catch male Codling moths. They detect the pheromone and fly into the trap thinking a female Codling moth is present. This then prevents them mating with females and reduces Codling moth egg laying, which helps reduces the pest population numbers.

The Codling moth trap supplied by Dragonfli is called a Castellation trap. These are traps that do not use glue to stick up the moth in the trap like most Codling moth traps. The Castellation trap is filled with water so that when the Codling moth enters the trap it falls into the water trap and drowns. This prevents the capture of larger insects and even birds, which might fly into a conventional trap by accident. The entry holes on the castellation moth trap are only big enough for moths.

Codling moth traps should be hung in apple trees from May onwards.

  • One Dragonfli Codlling moth trap will cover up to 16-20 trees
  • They are supplied with a long life pheromone lure, which lasts one whole moth flying season
  • The Codling moth trap can be re-used each year if a new Codling moth pheromone lure is added, which are available from Dragonfli
