Caption: Mediterranean fruit fly drinking insecticide. Agricultural Research Service scientists in Hilo, Hawaii are collaborating with Agricultural Research Service researchers at Weslaco, Texas, to investigate phloxine B, better known as the FDA- approved red dye number 28. The dye might prove a safe, effective alternative to todays malathion insecticide. Medflies often share regurgitated food. This helps spread the insecticidal dye-and- bait blend through the population.
