Abstract
HAW-FLYPM’s package of control techniques are focused around a combination of monitoring and population control methods. Traps with species specific lures are used for monitoring and population elimination. Field sanitation— removing and sequestering or destroying all fruit left in the field is critical to the success of the HAW-FLYPM program. In addition, roosting crops and releases of sterile male flies and parasitoid wasps can be used to enhance the program, if needed.
