Nylon Maggot Barriers

ZIN496P

Protect your fruit from pesky insects.
Maggot Barriers are a proven alternative to pesticides, traps and paper bags, and will protect fruit from infestations of apple maggot flies and codling moths. Apply barrier when fruitlet is smaller than 1 inch in diameter and they will expand with the growth of the fruit, creating a physical barrier to insect infestations. Maggot Barriers are made from 100% nylon.
ZIN497 is a heavier weave with double the thickness for larger fruit, or heavier infestations of codling moths.

Works Well

Put these on right after the spring fruit drop (called June drop, but happens in May in NM); a few fruit will already have a worm and will not be protected, but any not struck yet will be good for the season. Best option I've seen so far.

I really like them. Not all that much fun to put on but great when you get perfect fruits at the end of the season. This time I'm trying twist ties because I want to make it easier to seal. I still have some of my perfect apples in my basement fridge.
Work great

I have used these for several years on the one apple that will get maggots in every apple I don't cover. They absolutely work. They must be put on when small and you can thin at the same time. I can do 100 in less than 2 hours.
Don't work...

I put these on every apple on my tree (fortunately it's a little tree!) a couple of weeks ago. I even used twist ties instead of just tucking them in at the stem. Yesterday I noticed dark spots and dampness. Upon removing the "sock" I found that they didn't work. Small maggots in the apples. I'll just spray next year.
