Bartlett Pear - Protection from Coddling Moth through use of nylon stockings?

Question details

Does anyone know if it's too late to cover your developing pears with something such as a disposable nylon sockette (of the shoe store variety) if the pears are about two inches in length? I'm just wondering if the coddling moth larva has already moved in. Thanks again!
