I have used zip-lock sandwich bags for years very successful on apples. Most other fruits I tried did not work well. I do cut the bottom corners of about 10 bags at a time and can bag hundreds of them in an hour or 2. It stops about 80% of bug damage. We do the bagging just after thinning about Memorial day in Zone 6. the apples are about the size of your finger or thumb. If too early the stem will be damaged and the apple and bag will fall soon. If too late the apple bugs will beat you too it!

Most years we bag about 2000 - 3000 apples and the first weeks loose about 100 bags from the weather or the apple was just going to thin anyway, so falls with the bag. Then through the season we have many others fall early with bug holes, but still good for a trimmed early snack.  Those that remain until harvest are 90% bug free and for the time and cost of the bags it is less expensive and maybe equal or probably less time to trying to spray every week and not being successful in keeping the codling moths out! and who wants to spray every week and still have 50% damaged apples when bagging will get you almost 90% even with heavy codling moth pressure!

used plastic bags with holes cut in a corner to drain water...

Good bloom on cherries and peaches here, hope they come through the
frosts/freezes.

Hi
Im wondering what people think of bagging individual fruit as in using
"fruit bags" or "Japanese fruit bags"

Ive thought of trying it but havent gotten around to it. And I have several
clients looking for them. Any sources?

(sorry if this is a repeat topic- I didnt search the archives)

thanks

Jono

I did order some bags from Territorial but haven't tried them yet.

https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.territorialseed.com_product_nylon-2Dmaggot-2Dbarriers&d=CwICAg&c=rTID8zFL-e0diXJhnyrnsnYU8VIcDlW52AybVWLBNqM&r=3q_o75mYRtGDknC9RjeuI-yJN97mF1XxYGNfVGxhomM&m=5NsHaAd_E8-WBXK1-IqvRlZQGfO_Lff-z_uwehM_T6Y&s=DDknLe1KnER1eiqwpo8O6ft4eFT4hEhauINjU-HyHFE&e=

Not sure whether I'll have any fruit to try them on this year, either.
Most of the old trees have died and replacement trees are too young. But
it's possible I'll try them on some apricots, even if it's rootstock fruit,
just to see what happens.
