Coddling Moth is an insect that puts worms in the fruit of your apple and pear trees. They overwinter in cocoons and hatch when temperatures have reached optimum levels. The adults mate and then females begin laying eggs at the base of leaves. After they hatch, the larvae crawl to the forming fruit and chew their way inside. Preventative treatments must be made before the insects make it inside the safety of their new home. Multiple treatments each year are needed to control this pest.
