Q.

Holes in my pears.

Pear tree is full, now all of a sudden there are black holes in almost all of them; really good pears. Sad to see this. Have not used any kind of spray.

    Is it actually holes or is it black spots? Black spot disease is a possibility. I don't really have enough information here or a photo, but you can call your local extension agent and I'm sure he/she can help. You might consider using a combo insect/fungal spray next year.
