Fruit Integrated Pest Management

The adult codling moth is identified primarily by the patterns on the wings. The wings are held tent-like over the body, and the general pattern is a series of brownish bands against a tan/gray background (pictured). At the posterior of the wings are shiny copper patches. The typical adult is approximately 3/8“ long, though they can be somewhat smaller depending on the environmental conditions they had to endure during development.
