Removal of fallen fruit is crucial to prevent further infestations of FCM. Fruits can be covered to prevent them from being stung by FCM.
Pheromone-based trapping is also used to control populations of the FCM. These traps contain the pheromone of females to attract males and kill them. These traps are also used to investigate the activity of the FCM in specific fruit-producing areas.
The parasitic wasp, Trichogrammatoidea cryptophleebiae, is known as the most effective suppression of the false codling moth (FCM), being an effective egg parasitoid. There are also effective larval parasitoids, including the wasp Agathis bishopi.
