Greg, I don't know a repellant but you can put paper bags over choice fruit to protect them. You can re-use the bags. Some people say neem can be used as a repellant. You can also spray an attractant mixed with something like neem or pyrethrum on the trunk or lower leaves of the trees. FF are the bane of organic existance in this region. I hope you have some success. David
