Springstar - Oakstump Apple Maggot Trap
The Springstar Apple Maggot Trap are traps to use just once a season for apple maggots. These fruit flies from these maggots attack apples, blueberries, plums, pears, cherries and hawthorn. They cause damage to these fruits, making them useless. Most fruits are attacked by flies that lay their eggs during late spring to early summer. These traps should be placed in mid- April, before apple fruiting, and left out until harvest.

This trap includes a one-season controlled release lure system. Do not open the plastic vial; attractant is released through the plastic. Place traps in trees 1-2 weeks before bud break, in early spring. Hang the trap 1-2 feet inside the tree canopy, near apples. Check for flies every 2-3 days and, if necessary, apply addtional fly control treatments. Re-glue when full of insects, when it becomes dusty or at least every 4 weeks.
