First flush...the fun begins.  I did not see any damage on first flush last year.

TFN
I never see CLM on the first flush as it is too cool for the insects to fly. Even second flush may not have them. Ambient temps need to be in upper 70's consistently for those moths.  The third flush and they will hit the flush hard. Also, once you see the flush its too late as the worm is already in the leaf, immune to any topical spray. 
I see flower buds.  You will kill bees applying imidacloropid (sp?) before flowering is over.

well the picture contradicts with your statement about first flush, see that flower? its normally during first flush. Last year my entire tree was badly infected at first flush and I sprayed need oil and lost all flowers and small fruit sets. This year, no issues as of 2nd flush. I will keep an eye.

time to change the lure as we are heating up now.
