Farmers do not have a reason not to manage this invasive fruit fly that has caused much damage and losses to all kinds of fruit production. The fruit fly has been the cause to Kenya’s fruit export ban to some international markets. This has contributed to slowed growth in export volumes and values of fruits in the recent past, thereby inflicting poor returns to the farmers earnings.
