Keeping Moths from Fruit on Trees

To keep moths, etc, from attacking fruit on trees in the spring, place a plastic gallon bottle with one cup sugar, one banana skin, and fill it half full with water. Hang it from a limb of the tree.

Add a squirt of dish soap too if you want to drown bugs. It changes the surface tension and they die faster.

This will keep the moths from getting into the center of the fruit? We have trouble with moths getting into the middle of our apples, if we try to store them the moth worms will bore right out and we end up with moths in our kitchen. Gross! We were new to fruit orchard when we moved to our home that has 22 fruit trees. We don't want to use pesticides so if this would cure our problem we would be so happy!
