Codling Moth Lure

Codling moth lure is a pheromone-based attractant lure for codling moth (Cydia pomonella). Combine the codling moth lure with a plastic delta trap, or similar trap, to monitor codling moth populations.

Target Crop

Codling moth is a major pest of pome fruit including apples, pears & nashi fruit. The codling moth lure is designed for use anywhere codling moth may be present.

  • Effectively monitors the presence of codling moth (Cydia pomonella) in a crop
  • Provides accurate pest pressure data to determine the most cost-effective and productive control solution
  • Saves input costs by reducing the risk of overspraying
  • Helps reduce human and environmental exposure to pesticides
  • Reduces the possibility of pesticide resistance by limiting their excessive use

Codling moth lure consists of a rubber plug impregnated with a specific pheromone that attracts male codling moths. When combined with a trap the pheromone will attract and catch codling moths enabling accurate crop monitoring.

Place the lure on top of the adhesive panel inside the trap. Only one codling moth lure is needed per trap. Traps should be placed in the field and positioned slightly higher than mid-canopy height, or where the pest usually resides.

Monitor traps regularly from early spring up to harvest for the presence of codling moth. Replace the sticky surface of the trap every 2 weeks or when dirty or saturated with insects. Replace the codling moth lure with a new lure at least every 6 – 8 weeks.

Deploy mating disruption techniques with trap deployment and apply GRANDEX at egg laying stage of first flight.

When handling the lure, wear disposable gloves and avoid contaminating the outside of the trap with the pheromone. Discard old lures and all material that was in contact with the lures from the field. This includes the codling moth lure packaging and disposable gloves.

Application Rate

Insert 1 codling moth lure per trap. Use at least 1 trap every 2 hectares. The number of traps/ha can be reduced when monitoring large, contiguous areas.

For best results, consult a qualified pest control advisor or your distributor for specific instructions regarding the application rate and timing for codling moth lure application, as these will vary depending on pest population, crop, and field conditions.

Suitable for use in any crop vulnerable to codling moth.

  • Codling Moth Lure - 10 pack
  • Wear disposable gloves while handling and applying codling moth lures.

    Store unused codling moth lures sealed in the original container. Store in a cool, dry place, away from heat and out of direct sunlight. For optimal shelf life, keep refrigerated or in the freezer.
