Research contributed by this team to CRP D41027 will explore two different mechanisms for achieving diminished responsiveness to cuelure that will be required for the simultaneous deployment of MAT and SIT in Queensland fruit fly (Bactrocera tryoni): (1) pre-release dietary supplementation with raspberry ketone and (2) selection of genetic lines with reduced cuelure response. In both cases, we will explore both the desired effects on lure response and the possibility if undesired impacts on fly quality. We already have significant experience in this field, and will guide other CRP participants in replicating our existing outcomes for B. tryoni in other species.
