    Aftrnoon clickers rain gave us a miss after all, blue sky but a cool wind at times.Joan bought me a pheromone trap from Malvern, it was £2 cheaper ,than in their catalogue
    • Present from Malvern, codling moth trap, advice from seller, put corrugated cardboard round base of trunk, about a foot high and tie in place. This give a hiding place for any surving codling moth maggots to pupate. September remove cardboard and burn

    • Fascinating … unfathomable but fascinating Tony :lol: :rose:

    • The trap has the scent of the female codling moth, the males are attracted and get stuck to the sticky base inside the trap

    • Ah :good: I wondered how it worked without a light! Thanks Tony :-) :rose:
