Symptoms

Spot them

Small white, brown-headed caterpillars bore into fruit and feed around the core.

Codling moth

Comment from Peter Foster

Hi
A mature apple tree that was in the garden when we acquired this property is badly affected by codling moth grubs. I would appreciate any advice to prevent a similar attack next year. Do grease band have any effect against this pest?
