It has fruit now and the fruit has been infected with codling moth. What product do I spray it with to kill the moth?

Firstly, remove and destroy infested fruit from the tree and the ground. Then, clean up any loose material on the tree (flaking bark, broken branches and litter in the crotch of the tree) to remove breeding sites for the larva to pupate.
There is no spray that is registered to kill the moth, but for control of the larvae that causes the damage, spray the tree with Yates Success Ultra.
You may also wish to band the tree with hessian to catch any wayward caterpillar walking down the branches in search of a site to pupate.
