1) Establish colonies of fruit flies. 2) Determine most tolerant species and stage of fruit fly in sweet cherries via dose-response curves to MB fumigation in small chambers. 3) Conduct large scale efficacy tests to demonstrate efficacy of treatment. 4) Assess postharvest quality of cherries after fumigation.
