Apple maggot / coddling moth
We have a single apple tree in front yard that has been neglected for many years. The few good apples we get from the tree are excellent, so we want to save it. Last year after harvest I put two wide strips of Tanglefoot around the base. Sprayed with dormant oil at Thanksgiving, New Years and Valentines day. The crop is better this year, but as I cull I see lots of infested apples - some with just a few spots on the skin, others with large dark spots. What can we do to save as many apples as possible, this year and next? Thank you! -Paul

Looks like you have some scab going on too. Note that cultural practices can help with scab, making sure old leaves and fruit are not left over winter, pruning to improve air circulation in the canopy.
