I have a Pinkabella and Dwarf Granny Smith. Granny is forming small fruit. As I live in Qld., do I need to spray for bugs?
Thanks

Personally, I don't spray my apples as I don't want chemical residues. I've tried both bagging fruit individually, and netting the trees to keep bugs,fruit moths and f/fly away, both work pretty ok, but not 100% foolproof if bags/net touches fruit, you put them on too late, you don't secure them tight enough, or there's a small hole you missed seeing. There are also a range of F/fly traps and lures, however these won't totally protect but will keep numbers down.

Protect your fruit from birds too, as lorikeets love apples.
