Conference paper


Fruit flies can be chemically controlled by a mixture of insecticide and food attractants, commonly known as baits (Steiner, 1955). These mixtures have performed well in different parts of the world; they also offer economic and ecological advantages when compared with traditional treatments with insecticides. The main advantages are: a) reduction in application costs; b) reduction in the amount of active ingredient of the insecticide used per surface unit; and c) reduction of the treated area (Hagen, 1955).
