Oriental fruit fly

Bactrocera dorsalis, an Oriental fruit fly

Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam is dedicated to Florida’s $123 billion agriculture industry from invasive pests and disease.

The Oriental fruit fly, one of the world's most serious exotic fruit flies, is able to infest many different kinds of commodities, attacking over 430 different fruits, vegetables and nuts. The department and the USDA are working diligently to eradicate this pest.
