How do I prevent apple maggots?
It's possible that you have some late-season apple maggots that hadn't hatched out until after you picked the apples. Apple maggot adults can lay their eggs on the apples from about the first of July through September in your area. Weekly sprays of insecticide or apple maggot traps made of sticky red spheres hung in the tree are ways to control the apple maggot adults.
