THWART CODLING MOTH
Codling moths hibernate in larvae form over winter, inside a cocoon in the crevices of bark or beneath the tree, then emerge as moths in mid to late spring to lay eggs in the small fruitlets of pip fruit. Thwart them by scattering neem granules around the base of the tree to the dripline from now until November or December. Spraying with neem oil or Yates Success Ultra Insect Control (which is especially effective with codling moths) when moth activity is high can help to prevent fruit being ruined. Use a trap to monitor the moths so you can time the spray right.
