May I suggest that if you want ready-made answers from previous posts, please google:Garden web forum, apple maggots.

Many old posts will show up for you to read. Most of the times, someone knowledgeable have given answers in those old posts. You'll learn a lot in a short time.

You need to learn not only what to spray, but when. This is a summer pest.
