In Oregon, the two main worms that affect cherries are western cherry fruit fly and spotted wing drosophila. You should spray trees with carbaryl, malathion, or spinosad when cherries reach straw color, which occurs turn from green to yellow. This usually occurs between late May and early June. You can contact your local extension office for more precise dates to spray for these flies.
