Moth larvae will eat their way into the flesh of apples creating tunnels. Usually, they enter the apple by its ‘eye’ on the opposite end to the stalk.
Sprays containing Lambda-cyhalothrin or deltamethrin can be used on small trees but are only effective if you do it once the larvae have emerged but before they burrow into the fruits. From late June to early July is usually the best time but the weather plays a part in this.
Note: It is important to read manufacturer's instructions for use and the associated safety data information before applying chemical treatments.
