Did you know...

Did you know that fruit flies are not just domestic pests, but can also severely damage crops as well? The species of invasive fruit fly, Bacteria invadens, was first detected in Africa in 2003 in Kenya. One article by José et al. titled "Assessment of Invasive Fruit Fly Fruit Infestation and Damage in Cabo Delgado Province, Northern Mozambique" studies the effects of B.invadens on crops and the extent of their damage, as well as the infestation levels in different fruits in Mozambique.
