The codling moth is believed to be the most serious threat to producing good apples and pears in northern Utah. As a result, the Davis County Extension Office of Utah State University has developed a new Web site with weekly updates on the moth and how to best control it.

This year's cool spring has slowed the moth down, so the public still has time to control this pest.

Spinosad, Carbaryl, Permethrin and Malathion are common chemicals homeowners can use on fruit.
