Codling Larvae Sighted.

Careful probing of one of the Summer Strawberry apples today confirmed my suspicions and dampened my spirits about getting a good crop this year. This is the Codling Moth larvae, alive and well and starting is journey to the center of the apple. This sighting was enough to send me to Bunnings, as if i needed an excuse, to seek protecting for the remaining unmolested fruit. I went with Yates Dipel which is a less toxic bacteria based insecticide. It may be too little too late but at least I can say I tried damn it!
