Sam,
I'm glad you asked what the maggot looks like.  Looking at this picture of
the apple maggot
http://gardening.wsu.edu/library/tree002/tree002.htm
and the codling moth larva,
http://www.uidaho.edu/so-id/entomology/codling%20moth%20larva.jpg
I think most of my damage is from codling moth.  I conclude this based on
the dark colored head of the "worm" and the kind of damage that it is
causing.  The damage I have has only one entrance and one exit hole, as
shown here.

The apple maggot seems to do a lot of meandering through the apple, which I
don't have.

How do people control codling moth?  Where can I get codling moth traps?
Anyone have experience with Bulls-Eye bioinsecticide from Gardens Alive?

Don't really have any.
At least there are no worms in our apples that I know of.
Worst problem is something bites a hole and sow bugs get in and start
eating more.
We dry most of our apples and use a corer-peeler gadget.
There may be a spot in every 100th apple I have to cut out.
On the drops which we turn into apple sauce, we will have to cut out the
brused spots.
What does a maggot look like?
Sam
