Apples with extras

andicommandicomm Posts: 1

Is it too late to treat my 3 apple trees to try and stop them getting infested? Codling moth maggots and then earwigs destroy the majority of the hundreds of apples I get.

I haven't wrapped the trunks, sadly (found out that too late), can I spray them or anything, the flowers are just starting to fall.

I hate to have to throw away so many delicious apples.

    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    There's some info here http://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=489 image  I'd rather not use pesticides but if you're prepared to apparently there are some available.
