Latin Name - Rhagoletis pomanella
Suggested Trap - Red Ball Traps
Field Life - Full Season
Category(s) - SMALL FRUIT, ORCHARD
Once flies are close to the ball trap they will be attracted to it for mating upon which they are captured. When using the apple essence, 5 flies per trap average now becomes the action threshold for making a spray decision instead of 1 fly captured for using the trap with no attractant. We recommend placing the vial about 12in away from the ball trap by tying it to the same scaffold limb the ball trap is hanging from. NOTE: Backyard trees do not need the apple essence as the trap itself is effective in a few trees.
