Hanging Baskets of Sex and Death Help Fruit Growers

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/pressreleases/NE1000000122742/

A hanging basket style device is at the heart of a plan by researchers at the University of Warwick to harness the sex drive of a major pest of fruit orchards as a weapon to spread a virus to kill that very same pest. The device allows growers to selectively target the pest with a virus that kills its larvae without killing other beneficial insects.
