Abstract: Forty years ago fruit flies entered the U.S. undetected, and they have been responsible for destroying millions of dollars of citrus and mangoes. To control the pests a biological control (parasitic larva) was used. Dr. Pauline Lawrence, University of Florida Zoology professor, is doing research to try to find a synthetic chemical which would regulate the growth of insects (specifically the Caribbean fruit fly) and which could be used without interfering with the use of biological controls already in place.
