We have been battling these guys here over the past 4 years.. The problem is amplified as there are many local people that have mango trees & allow the fruit to drop & rot encouraging the mass breading of these pains in the fruity bits.. I am going to try & beat these guys this year using netting & bags so we can get some decent tomatoes & capsicum/peppers..
