Production of fruit offers one of the most important opportunities for income generation & improvement in food and nutritional security. However fruit flies cause damage by puncturing the fruit skin to lay eggs. During laying of eggs the bacteria from intestinal flora of the fly are introduced into the fruit. These bacteria bring about rotting of the tissues surrounding the egg. Over the years icipe seeks to assemble fruit fly management packages based on baiting and male annihilation technique, classical biological control, biopesticides and orchard sanitation for large-scale field application, and minimal use of pesticide in localised bait stations of spot spray.
