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.
