Does anyone use maggot barriers? I have some but haven't put them on yet. I think I should have put then on a few weeks ago. My apples are bigger than the dime size recommended. I've read mixed things about if they work.
They're basically a nylon stocking to protect the apples from maggots.
How did your apples do and did you end up covering your apples? I got apple maggot for the first time this year. Do you eat the apples once they got the maggot? If so, do you eat them raw or do you cook them?

Frost got most of them so I didn't bother with the barriers.
I've got a good start on a predator/parasitic wasp/pollinator garden for next year. I will probably try the barriers too.
