    I have an apple and crabapple tree in the same yard. I have been able to eliminate apple maggot from the apples by putting socks on the young fruit, but the crabapples are vulnerable because they are too numerous and small to wrap. The crabs are, therefore, heavily infested with maggots. We picked up all the fallen apples last fall, but it didn't help at all. Has anyone had success with other controls, especially nematodes?
    Thanks,
    Bob
