Dept. of Food and Ag to drop millions of fruit flies on Los Angeles
It’s fly vs. fly in the skies over Los Angeles. Earlier this month, the California Department of Food and Agriculture quarantined 69 square miles of metro L.A. after invasive and destructive Mediterranean fruit flies were found at a home in the Leimert Park neighborhood. Now, officials are planning to drop millions of sterile flies on the area to eradicate them through birth control.
