This season we thought we would use the Great Lakes traps and lures on 
recommendation of our contracted entomologist.  Spent several hundred 
dollars and never caught a single PC but had plenty of fruit damage.  In the 
past 15 years, Royal Oak Farm has never found a good trap and lure that 
works.  The good ole "shake the tree and see what falls" method has proved 
more valuable than any trap we have used.  We got more damage using the 
traps this year than ever before.  Next year, we go back to shakin'!

For what it's worth!!
