What Methods are Used to Control the White Striped Fruit Fly Population?

Detection, survey and eradication campaigns are conducted when an infestation is detected. The proposed eradication treatment is based on previous experience with fruit fly outbreaks in California and includes mass trapping with the use of removable bait stations, along with supplemental ground-level spraying of potential host plants. Fruit stripping may also occur in areas where mated females or larval infestations are found.
