I have been reading that in Florida it is very common to find guavas with 'worms' (actually the larva of fruit flies). Our big problem here in the desert is fungus gnats, but fruit flies are not as common. Does anyone growing guavas here in the valley find that guava 'worms' are a problem?

Never had troubles with worms. I have one white guava that has trouble with little beetles that eat the guava through the flower and make it rot though. Only 1 out of my 8 guava trees has that problem though. I think they are called ambrosia beetles.

Shamus O' Leary's place doesn't seem to have an issue big enough to affect overall yields.
