Get rid of grub like bugs in a peach tree

We planted a peach tree at least five years ago and last year would have been the first year for peaches but, the fruit had grub like bugs in it. This year, it is the same way, how can we get rid of the grubs and or bugs in the tree?

Those who grow peaches commercially have a regular schedule of sprays. You can check with your local university extension agent to see what they recommend. You also could apply an insecticidal soap/horticultural oil spray on the tree right afte r the flowers drop off and the fruit starts to form. Use this conservative spray again two weeks later--spray the entire tree. Watch for moths,the adult forms of the worms. Spray again if you  see a number of them. The alternative is to simply cut the worms out of the fruit.
