Rotten peach pits

I have 2 producing peach trees that I love. I don't want to use pesticide sprays to keep them from getting worms and other bugs, however, when I peel the peaches they are full of brown spots from bugs and worms and what looks like tiny eggs all around the seed area. How do I care for my peach trees in order to produce "pretty" and tempting peaches to eat?

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. Unfortunately, peaches are susceptible to a large number of pest and disease problems, so if you want perfect peaches, you pretty much have to spray.
