Beetroot leaves - stained?

Posted: 20/07/2015 at 21:23

Apple problem

Still looks like codling moth. Using the traps catches males, and shows how many you have. Reduce overwintering larvae by picking up and burning all fallen apples or maggoty apples, or send in council green waste bin.  Encourage blue tits by hanging fat balls in the tree branches. Clear the area around the base of detritus to cut down hiding places for larvae. You will eventually clear them.
