Hi again, Golden,
I would recommend putting that yucky plastic netting over it as long as necessary, as with cherries. It's a pain in the ass, but temporary, and apricots are so yummy. I doubt hanging shiny aluminum or used cds would deter a manic squirrel. Cats and dogs can work (depending on the individual), but there are too many of these in urban areas already. The harm that cats do to birds and sea otters (through fecal run-off) in coastal California is well-documented.
