Chemosensors and ovipositing

Does anyone know what environmental cues Drosophila use to find
an appropriate substrate for ovipositing?  In particular, is
there any reason why tryptamine would inhibit egg laying?

Please excuse my ignorance if this is "standard" knowledge. I am just
a poor neurobiologist wondering why I don't get eggs!
