of Caribbean fruit fly, California will accept methyl bromide fumigation treatment at a minimum rate of lbs/ cubic ft. for 2 hours at 70° F and above. Also, as per the guidance in the federal treatment manual, the lot of Citrus sp. shall only be eligible for fumigation if a representative.   The fruit flies Bactrocera xanthodes and loae are important pests in Fiji, damaging the flesh (Tirimaidoka et al., ). As breadfruit is a fruit fly host, it requires quarantine treatment if it is to be exported fresh to New Zealand from Fiji and neighbouring areas of production. Key to this is high temperature forced air (HFTA.

The fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritoidea) is a pest with high phytosanitary impacts and economic importance worldwide. In Ecuador, fruit fly causes significant losses affecting more than different.   Both mass trapping and attract-and-kill approaches work best when pest density is relatively low (El-Sayed et al., , El-Sayed et al., ). For certain lepidopteran pests, attract-and-kill may be a better option than mating disruption since it minimizes the risk that males will recover and subsequently mate (Suckling, ).

This is to say that I came to First in Fly, a new book about fruit-fly research, with perhaps some special interest. In fact, a popular appreciation of fruit flies has seemed long overdue to me.

Chemicals from fermented chapote fruit were identified and evaluated as attractants for hungry adult Mexican fruit flies in laboratory and greenhouse bioassays.

The study of the chemical ecology of fruit flies is of great interest and utility serving as a source of potential chemical attractants for the development of detection, Nation, J.L. The structure and development of two sex specific glands in male Caribbean fruit flies.

Fruit flies in the family Tephritidae are among the most destructive, feared and well-publicized pests of fruits and vegetables around the world.

The genera Anastrepha, Bactrocera, and Ceratitis pose the greatest risk to U.S. agriculture. Tephritid fruit flies spend their larval stages feeding and growing in over host plants. The State of Florida, where Caribbean fruit fly, Anastrepha suspensa (Loew), is established, experienced several Mediterranean fruit fly introductions; and the State of Hawaii, where Mediterranean fruit fly, melon fly, and oriental fruit fly were already established, became the new geographical home for the so-called Malaysian fruit.

MEXICAN FRUIT FLY ATTRACTANTS volatilities. Chemicals were tested in 10 jtl aliquots of the solutions, result-ing in test quantities ranging from 10 ng to /tg of the individual chem-icals. Bioassays were conducted using aluminum-screened cages (30 cm/side) each containing one carton of flies.

Flies were tested when days. The Caribbean fruit fly is about 1/3 inch long. It has a yellow tan body with a black spot on the top of the thorax at the scutellum, and clear wings with a typical brown Anastrepha-type wing pattern with an “S” across the wing. The female ovipositor is about as long as the abdomen.

The immature stages are superficially similar to those of other exotic fruit flies. fruit fly attractants and traps. As a result, improved fruit fly trapping systems have been developed that are being adopted by operational fruit fly control programmes.
