Spraying apples naturally

Asked September 25, 2018, 5:07 PM EDT

We have two apple trees. Every year the apples are ruined with what I think are worms. I would like to spray these trees but not use anything that is harmful to humans. Do you know how I could spray these naturally or organically? Thank you.

Hi,

There is a way to prevent apple maggots without using any pesticides at all. It is labor intensive, but you only have to bag the number of apples you want. Here is information from the U:https://extension.umn.edu/yard-and-garden-insects/apple-maggot
