Fruit Integrated Pest Management

For more than 200 years, codling moth (Cydia pomonella) has been a key pest of apple and pear production in North America. It is native to Asia but occurs in most fruit growing regions of the world. In Utah and much of the West, codling moth infestations can destroy up to 80% of an apple crop if left uncontrolled.

The following links provide helpful information, images, and updates on fruit pest and disease control for both commercial orchardists and homeowners.
