Mass-produced B. tryoni are irradiated during the pupal stage to induce reproductive sterility. As increasing irradiation dosage results in declining fly quality, determining the lowest possible dosage that induces sufficient reproductive sterility is of particular interest. However, in calculating reproductive sterility, …
