Abstract

The Eastern Hills Fruit Fly Foliage Baiting Scheme is one of three similar schemes operating in the fruit-growing districts of Western Australia, the other two being located at Donnybrook and in the South Suburban (Armadale-Kelmscott) area. They are designed to prevent losses from the attacks of the Mediterranean Fruit Fly (Ceratitis capitata) by weekly foliage baiting with a solution of sodium fluosilicate and sugar in water.
