Apple Moth - Predator and Prey - Identification Pictures

Light brown apple moth levels (LBAM) are high this season compared to the last few years.

Where apple moth are present they have moved into bunches. Look for ‘strings’ of brown flower caps stuck in bunches. You can also find at this time of the year LBAM pupae (grubs turning into moths in a cocoon) and egg masses.

Pictured is an egg mass, top and damage to the bunches, bottom.
