Codling moth

Question

Asked by: John  23-Sep-2019

It seems that all apple trees in the area have been attacked with coddling moths. I have an old apple tree in my garden also infected. What are the chances of getting rid of this infestation, I read that it is very difficult? Is there an apple that is resistant to these moths?

Answer

Unfortunately there isn't any variety that would be resistant to codling moth. Further help and information can be found on the links below:
