Codling moth exclusion netting: an overview of French and Italian experiences


Abstract: Exclusion netting has been designed by the French extension services in 2005 to control the codling moth. Since 2009, the French and Italian Alt’Carpo networks have compared and shared their experiences about the efficacy of nets and their effect on pests and fruit production in both the French apple orchard and Italian pear orchards. The results indicated that netting represents an efficient way to control the codling moth and enables a significant reduction in pesticide use without any major risk for fruit production, harvest and quality.
