Apple Ermine Moth Traps & Refills
Apple Ermine Moth
Species Name: Yponomeuta malinellus Apple Ermine Moth.
An irregular pest of several fruit crops, in particular apples. Damage can be serious. Caterpillars feed on foliage under a webbing cover, causing severe defoliation.
The traps should be place in the orchard before the first moths appear and maintained until the end of the season. This is normally from Mid-June until Late August. It should be noted that the exact time of insect emergence will vary with location and seasonal variation.
