Investigating Bait Spraying to Control Queensland Fruit Fly

This video brings together some of the key experts in the field, to provide information to growers in the Greater Sunraysia region about their best option for Queensland fruit fly control on their properties.

Bait spraying is by far the most effective way of managing Queensland Fruit Fly populations.  The bait has an attractant in it, so you just put out tiny amounts and the flies actually come and find it.
