The Plum Fruit Moth ; Grapholita [cydia] funebrana is a common pest of plums , damsons and greengages. The female moth lays her eggs near the plum fruit and once the eggs hatch, the larvae burrow into the fruit. The caterpillar is pinkish-white and about 10-12mm long and eat the plums from within.This sometimes is not observed until the Plum is cut into.When the caterpillar is fully fed it may exit the plum leaving a small hole. Infected fruit often ripen first.

There are very options available to gardeners for control of Plum Fruit Moth and its caterpillars. One way to help reduce numbers is with a pheromone trap. The pheromone lure gives off a chemical scent that attracts male plum fruit moths. The new Plum Fruit Moth trap from Dragonfli uses a pheromone lure to draw the male moths into the trap. They then enter the trap and drown in the water inside. This system uses no glue, which means the traps can be easily re-used each year , if a new pheromone lure is added to the trap. The pheromone lure is attracting male plum fruit moths, so reduces the amount of eggs laid by females who fail to mate. This in turn helps reduces the Plum Fruit Moth population.

One Plum Fruit Moth trap will cover an area of up to 12 trees. The Dragonfli Plum Fruit Moth trap is also supplied with a long life lure, which means only one lure is required each season. Replacement lures can be bought each year.

On receiving your Plum Fruit Moth trap, remove the pheromone lure from its sleeve and put inside the small area in the top of the trap, which has a  small black cover. Fill the trap with water and a little bit of a mild detergent like washing up liquid. This helps break the surface tension in the trap to aid quick drowning of the plum fruit moth. Hang the trap in or near plum fruit trees. Place the trap out in early May, when moths start flying.

The Dragonfli Plum Fruit Moth Trap provides a chemical free method of reducing Plum Fruit Moth numbers and can be re-used for many years if using new plum fruit pheromone lures each season.

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
