|Sterilization of males pupae|
Fly larvae such as silkworms, lock themselves in a cocoon to take their final form. Still in the pupae stage and during this transformation, the future cocoons containing male flies are irradiated to be made sterile. These flies are irradiated in Israel, but remarkable example of cooperation in a troubled Middle East, some of them will be scattered over orchards in Jordan.
