Mark,  
 
The malathion formulation was Aquamul 8. No feeding attractants were used in the study- I am not clear either to which materials you are referring. Remember that one of the suggested adjuvants, Nulure, which has not yet been tried here, is a feeding STIMULANT, meaning the flies are not drawn to it as with a bait, rather they feed on the material once they land on it.
