Research by Wageningen Plant Research shows that a new isolate of the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium robertsii reduces reproduction of virgin suzuki-fruitflies very effectively. After 4 weeks in cages with a small dish of a blueberry-fungus mix there was virtually no reproduction of the fruit fly compared to a control treatment (94% reduction). Two parallel tested fungal products had less or no effect on reproduction.
