Plum Fly Trap

The plum fly or butterfly (Cydia funebrana) is an insect that lays its eggs in the distal area of the plum fruit. The larvae begin to grow for a period of 15 to 40 days and then begin to penetrate inside the fruit, feeding on the flesh.
The damage caused by the Cydia funebranabite is borne by the fruit, which falls off, has less firm flesh and a darker colouring. In addition, gummy cirri appear on the fruit at the tunnel exits.
