Plum Fruit Moth Killer


Plum Fruit  Moth Killer contains the nematode; Steinernema feltiae, which is used to control Plum Fruit moth larvae or caterpillars  when they are not in the fruit. Plum Fruit  moth larvae can attack Plums and Damsons and cause significant damage when they burrow into the fruit feeding on the inside and leaving their excrement behind. They also cause premature ripening of the fruit

Plum Fruit Moth Killer nematodes are applied to infected trees and their soil base in April and mid-September to kill the Plum Fruit Moth larvae as they overwinter,  while they are on the lower branches and tree trunk. They can also be present at the base of the tree in the soil. One pack treats up to 8 trees.
