    This is the 110'th update of my fly longevity experiments. Average
temperature was 25.8 C during this run. Estimated maximal longevity using
the formula (363 - T*11.2) is 74 days.
    Here I continue testing raw produce extracts. Parsley and high dose
mint proved to be toxic. Apricot and endive lettuce appeared to be
beneficial.
