The major cause of maggot damage to plums and gages is the caterpillar of the Plum Fruit Moth. This Plum Fruit Moth Trap uses the 'Pheromone' scent of the female moth to attract and catch male moths.


The trap should be placed in the garden at the end of May or after petal drop. If the spring weather is exceptionally warm, or in sheltered urban gardens, it may be an advantage to install the trap in mid May.


In the garden one trap should monitor up to 3 average size trees. It should be hung at around head height on the windward side of the tree (or group of trees).


The trap contains everything you need for a year and the refill allows for the use of the trap for a second year.

The trap should be assembled as in the diagrams shown on the packaging. The sticky inserts should be unfolded and placed, sticky side up, in the base of the trap. The pheromone lure should be removed from the foil sachet and laid in the center of the sticky insert. The trap should monitor up to 3 average size trees. It should be hung at around head height on the windward side of the tree.


After 5 weeks replace the sticky insert and lure with the second set provided.


Moths fly and mate on warm nights from early June until the middle of August. The trap should be placed in the garden at the end of May. If spring weather is exceptionally warm, or in sheltered urban gardens, it may be an advantage to install the trap in mid May.
