I did not use the kaolin with the footies here in Idaho.  Something bit an
insect sized hole right through the footie and I had plenty of coddling moth
damage.  Gave the footies to my sister in MA where hopefully the bugs are
less aggressive.

I've used nylon footlets w/Kaolin from Home Orchard Society (order on their
website) the past five years or more. It takes some time but I don't have to
mess with them again until a few weeks before the fruit is fully ripe, when
I carefully remove the li'l bags to allow better color to develop. 90% or
better success rate except with Liberty, which seems to be a codling magnet
and I got about 75% success with that. ( I speak of Liberty in the past
tense because I sold it to make room for Hunt Russet.)
