Keeping caterpillars and bugs off of ripening fruit can be a daunting task if you don’t want to use chemical sprays. Protect that fruit quickly, easily, and cheaply by slipping a ziplock baggie over apples or pears once the fruit has set. Seal it as closely around the stem as you can, and then let it be. As the fruit grows and turns downward, the baggie will go with it, and you can harvest everything blemish-free when it’s ripe.
