|Adult Apple Maggot Fly from Planet Natural|
Planet Natural's "Apple Maggot", Rob Sproule's "Apple Maggots 101", and University of Minnesota's "Apple Maggot: IPM for home growers" all have plenty of information about this insect and have devised approaches to manage it by interrupting its life cycle.
1. Set up apple maggot traps right after bloom time - trap the adults before they lay eggs on the apple fruit
2. Clean up apples right when they fall and do not compost them - prevents the pupae from leaving the apples, overwintering, and becoming adults.Do these and convince your neighbours to the same, and we'll all get fewer of these:
