Factsheet P03: Codling moth


The codling moth, Cydia pomonella (Syn. Laspeyresia pomonella), is one of the most widespread pests of apple, occurring in almost every country in which apples are grown. The damage is caused by the caterpillar (sometimes called the apple maggot – not to be confused with Rhagoletis pomonella from North America), which burrows into the fruit.
