Apple Tree Maintenance

I live in Buffalo, NY and have two apple trees on my front lawn. They were suppose to be dwarf variety, but of course they have gotten quite large. After a terrible October ice storm, about three years ago, they were "pruned by nature" and the apples that they now produce are overwhelming. I would love to harvest them, but they have been full of worms. What process is necessary to get rid of the critters? One is a mac and the other is a granny smith

 Thanks for writing. If you want perfect apples, you're likely going to have to start a spray regiment (either traditional synthetic or organic), and the best place to get started with that is your county extension office to determine exactly which pests you need to spray for. After all, there's no point of going to the expense and time and effort of spraying for something that's not a problem!
