Abstract

The temporal occurrence of the invasive and economically important pest fruit fly, Bactrocera invadens was studied in three agro-ecological areas of Morogoro Region, central Tanzania, during 2004-2005. Weekly and monthly trappings were carried out with methyl eugenol, protein bait and synthetic...

Abstract

A study was conducted between June and September 1993 to identify fruit fly species associated with mangoes in Morogoro, Tanzania. Two different species were found. One was identified as the Marula fruit fly, Ceratitis cosyra. The other species could not be identified with certainty but was thought ...
