Re: Drosophila repleta, Massachusetts, Pest Management

Drosophila repleta has a successful adaptation for breeding in decayed
food waste in drains.

The issue has been most prevalent in commercial food services, in malls
and hospitals.

Obviously proper sanitation and vigorous maintenance if drain systems and
other food waste deposits are the key - BUT.

The food service environment does not always provide complete source
elimination.

I was wondering if anyone has dealt with D. repleta in any instance,
whether it be directly related to pest management or other research.  Any
information of the supplemental use of the juvenile hormone mimics
methroprene and hydroprene?

I would appreciate any helpful information
