for the past 3 or 4 years I have been battling with plum codling moth maggots ruining my plum harvest.
I set 2 pheromone traps within the branches with limited success , as some had maggots and some did not. I have continued to do this each year.
last year I set chives and lavender vulgaris under the branches, as I read somewhere that the moth does not like their scent. Again with some limited success as there were fewer with maggot but still not completely clear.
This October I put a thick grease band around the trunk of the tree and around the 3 main branches.
Is there anything else I can do?
