The approach of using feeding stations ...
The approach of using feeding stations as a low cost and effective tool for controlling fruit flies on extensive areas has been substantiated lately by Biofeed Ltd., as described by its CEO, Dr. Nimrod Israely.
Says Israely "There are currently two main approaches aiming to avoid the commonly used non-selective mass sprays of chemical pesticides against fruit flies. (1) The sterile insect technique (SIT) generally implemented for the control on extensive areas and implemented year round. (2) Specific traps for mass trapping, mostly implemented on restricted areas during the fruit-bearing season exclusively.
