A couple of things. First of all, the fruit flies in question are not in the genus Drosophila, but in the genus Bactrocera.  Nevertheless, they are a serious pest, threatening the growing olive industry in California. Secondly, I find it weird that a Republican candidate should proclaim research on pests threatening business  as not being in the public good.
