Apple Bags - Avoiding Moths when Growing Apples

I'm trying a technique that I've read about online.  To avoid apple worms (codling moth larvae) we've cut holes in the bottom of paper bags and placed them over the apples when they reached about an inch across.  We then stapled the opening of the bags closed after folding a few times.

So far we've lost a few bags to storms but most have stayed on.  I really hope that this technique will work because I would really like to eat our own home-grown chemical-free apples!
