Pre-harvest management of the oriental fruit fly.


The oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) (Diptera: Tephritidae), is an important pest of commercial fruit and vegetables in various parts of Asia and Africa, in some South Pacific islands and in Hawaii. Commercial fruit and vegetables can be protected from this pest prior to harvest using multiple control tactics. This paper reviews measures being used and developed for pre-harvest management of B. dorsalis. An integrated use of monitoring and combinations of control tactics on an area-wide basis for the pest is discussed.
