Richgro fruitfly spray worked really well on my 3 different guavas, only downside is if you like the smell of guavas through the house you'll be disappointed.

Else bagging will work to a degree, remove and destroy any fruit infected already.

organza bags on ebay, around $25 for 100 bags, you want the bigger size like 30cm x 40cm.

Tying a bag works really well last year for my parents in Sydney against FF . This year not so well with many days over 40 degrees literally fried the guavas.Organza bags still has tiny holes in it which is not 100% FF proof.My own guava tree is covered with netting and I get no FF.Only downside is how big is your teee will determine the the size of the nets and they can be expensive and a real eye sore.

I've seen special paper bags for protecting fruit, they were designed for it...100 for 6 au$.

I use netbags and so far so good.

People upcountry here use white plastic bags, also works and it's around 40 celcius every day there.

I think the paper bags are the best but haven't tried those. The sun can ruin the skin of guava's.

Ikea sells nice big klamboo's and also the netfabric in big pieces..
