No significant trapping was carried on for the detection of fruit flies untilfollowing the rediscovery of the Mediterranean fruit fly Ceratitis capitata Wiedeman in and its subsequent costly eradication.

World Crop Pests, 3 3A: Analyses using migrate revealed there is continuous gene flow between sampling sites in Florida and the Caribbean and among different hosts. Abamectin has been shown to be ahastrepha viable alternative to malathion Hennessey and King, for use in bait sprays. Although this classical biological control technique is effective in reducing Caribbean fruit fly populations, it is not an eradication technique.

Tephritidae and other quarantine pests. Anashrepha number of traps required per unit area is high; in a mark-release and recapture test, Calkins et al. Fruits may also be treated in transit by cold treatment for example, 13, 15 or 17 days at 0.

Proceedings of the Florida State Horticulture Society, Anastrepha suspensa Notes on Taxonomy and Nomenclature Top of page This species was first described in by Loew as Trypeta suspensa.

The adult is a small yellow-brown fly that can be as long as anastgepha mm, with rather long, patterned wings. The body is predominantly yellow to orange-brown. Close mobile search navigation Article navigation.

An expanded detection system of trapping eventually showed both A. Chemical Control Insecticidal protection is possible using a cover spray or a bait spray. Journal of Economic Entomology, 89 4: For that reason A. White and Elson-Harris described the third-instar larva as follows: Pheromone based trapping systems have also been developed Landolt and Heath, Meanwhile, investigations were conducted to determine what hosts might be attacked under caged conditions, as well as under field conditions, syspensa determine the results of the crossing of several species of Anastrepha under laboratory conditions, to work out the life histories of the species found to occur in the Florida Keys, and to develop control and eradication techniques.


Intensive trapping and fruit cutting during the next several weeks indicated an alarming buildup of what appeared to be a localized population of A. The cephalo-pharyngeal skeleton is not usually examined in routine identifications because the larval specimen must be dissected before this character can be examined. Vapor-heat treatment of carambolas infested with Caribbean fruit fly Diptera: Florida Entomologist, 74 2: Response of Caribbean fruit fly Diptera: The first method involves limited spraying of groves and adjacent areas with pesticide baits.

Although pesticide treatments have been shown to reduce fruit fly populations with minimal adverse effects, attempts are being made to develop an integrated pest management approach using biological control techniques.

For most regions, the fruits most liable to carry A. In no case was orange, grapefruit, or mango attacked. Comparison of the ovipositors of the schoepfia fruit fly, A. Tephritidae in guava and carambola grove soils.
