Oriental fruit flies found in Los Angeles

 Oriental fruit flies have been found near the Los Angeles Harbor, prompting county crews to set traps to kill the pest. The Los Angeles County Department of Agriculture found a fly Tuesday in Harbor City. Three additional flies were found there and in Rolling Hills later in the week.

County workers are preparing to spread insecticide-laden bait in the area. No spraying is planned, but sticky globs of poisoned bait will be stuck to power poles and high in trees. The flies usually arrive in Southern California when contraband food, fruit or plants are brought in from Asia. The pest can infest more than 230 types of fruits and vegetables.

The pesticide will be brushed onto surfaces in Torrance, Harbor City, Carson, Wilmington, Lomita, Rolling Hills Estates and Rolling Hills, County spokesman Ken Pellman said.
