The bagging for fruit fly works differently on pears

Hi


I did the same thing with some pears
I made bags and hung them for protection over the pears
admittedly the pears were already large but still green
afterwards some fruit were rotten and something large had eaten right through the bag ! with a hole stained brown around the edges
!(see picture)
comparing the bagged and unbagged fruit
the bagged fruit were slightly less damaged by insects
and a whole lot less sunburned ... they were greener and with smoother skins
(see picture)

What do you think ?
