The Q&A Archives: Controlling Apple Maggots

Question: How do I save my apple tree from apple maggots before they ruin the whole tree?

Answer: You can purchase apple maggot traps that catch the adult flies on their sticky surfaces. Use 2 traps per dwarf tree, 2-4 per semi-dwarf and 6 or more on a full-size tree. They can be ordered from Gardener's Supply company, 128 Intervale Rd., Burlington, VT 05401, (800) 863-1700,

Good luck with your tree.
