Apple maggots have recently invaded our neighborhood and so I am
trapping them for the first time this summer. I have a few questions
about this, I am hoping to learn more. What percentage of apple maggot
flies can one trap? Do traps lure more of one gender than the other?
Any hints for setting traps in very small trees? Do apple maggots
prefer some varieties over others? Do they stay at one height or do they
go to any apple in the tree? I am using mostly Red Delicious apples
brushed with brush-on Tanglefoot and ammonium carbonate.

Thank you very much,
Annette Kruzic
