food in warehouse. The author solely focuses on the amount of damaged food.
However, the first conditions about the number of pests of each city may be
considered, then the evaluation of the Fly-Away’s performance have to be

alternatives for the intrinsic conditions of Palm city and Wintervale, the
initial number of pests in each city and soundness of conclusions.
