Why Is Israel Scattering Millions of Flies Around Gaza? 

1
Every week, 33 million flies are scattered from airplanes onto orchards and agricultural farmland surrounding Gaza by Israel’s Agriculture Ministry in order to combat the Mediterranean fruit fly, reports Lidar Grave-Lazi for the Jerusalem Post.
The sterile male flies mate with female flies infesting the crops, thus preventing the creation of the next generation of fruit flies.
The technique is an environmentally friendly and chemical-free pest control method.
