FAQ

about the product

The plum fruit moth (Grapholita funebrana) lays its eggs on the surface of plums. After hatching, the caterpillars (or maggots) burrow into the fruit to feed, ruining it. They later burrow out to pupate back into moths.

Plum moth can easily be identified by:

- Pinkish maggots inside your plums
- Burrowing trails with traces of brown excrement
- Holes on the outside where they’ve burrowed in/out
- Early ripening plums

The pheromone uses the scent of female plum moths, attracting the male plum moths. Once they touch or land on the sticky insert, they become stuck and die.

1. Unfold the trap and attach the hanger
2. Unfold one sticky insert, and open one pheromone lure sachet. Place the lure in the middle of one sticky insert
3. Place the sticky insert, sticky side upwards, inside the trap
4. Fold up the bottom edges of the trap to hold the sticky insert in place
5. Hang the trap from a plum tree branch at head height
6. Store the remaining lure and insert in a cool, dry place

When adult moths are active, May to September.

How does a plum moth trap work?

The lure inside emits the female plum moth pheromone, which attracts the male. The male gets caught in the trap and dies. This prevents breeding and egg laying, and in turn the hatching of more maggots/caterpillars.

how to use

1. Open lure
