I would ike some suggestions for 'organic'/safe spray to use on my apple trees to prevent the brown spots & eventually bugs/worms on/in my apples. Any recommendations?
Thanks for your time.

The worms in your apples are on their way out, not on their way in. The eggs are laid in the flower and the apple forms around it. The larvae eat their way out. Those of us who grew up eating crabapples never bite to the core - worms taste really yucky.

Apple farmers spray apple trees many, many times between winter and picking. You are way behind at this point. Here's a schedule:
