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

Bumblebee deliveries

Our 2017 bumblebee delivery season has begun!

Still time to order your live colony, as we are delivering though to mid-July.

If you already have Beepol Villa or Queen Beehive, you will only need to order the bees this year.

As usual, we will be pre-treating the cardboard with B401 to protect against wax moth attacks, but you will need to treat the wood on the Villa or Queen Beehive yourself.

If you have not had our bees before, then the Villa and bees will be delivered together with the bees in the spring ( May -July).

 The Villa 2017 also comes with a gift voucher for the large bumblebee colony making it a great present idea or can be pre-ordered  with a live colony for delivery this spring ( May - July)

Red Mite Season

The warmer temperatures are perfect for Red Mite ( Chicken Mite) to increase in numbers.

ANDROLIS is the name of the product for controlling red mite and northern fowl mite on all birds.

It contains predatory mites that feed on red mite. They kill all stages of the parasites from egg to adult.

Red bird mite [ Dermanyssus gallinae ] causes significant stress to infected birds and anemia, which  sometimes leads to death. Birds show signs of nervousness and even cannibalism.

Chickens/ hens  and other birds infected with Red Mite also see a drop in egg laying.

ANDROLIS is easy to use and is 100% safe to the birds, the environment and humans.

Androlis is available in 3 sizes M, L XL
