About This Project

True fruit flies (Tephritidae) have an economic impact of hundreds of millions (USD) in the USA alone. They feed on a variety of agricultural products and are difficult to manage with pesticides without disrupting management of other pests. I am studying how temperature affects interactions between the flies, competitors, and natural enemies. This study will help us understand the ecology of these flies as well as better control these economically significant pests.

Blast off!
