AbstractFull Text

D. ciliatus is a major pest of a wide range of Cucurbitaceae in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Adult flight and fruit transport are major means of dispersal. It may cause indirect economic impact on exports and could become a serious pest if introduced in the USA. It is an EPPO A1 quarantine...

Abstract

The quarantine pests, Anastrepha grandis (Macquart) and Zeugodacus cucurbitae (Coquillett), are economically important for the fruit fly-free area in Brazilian semiarid, an area in which they are not yet present. Therefore, the objective of this study was to assess the probability of establishment...

Abstract

We conducted no-choice cage and field infestation studies to determine if the fruit of kiwifruit (Actinidia chinensis var. deliciosa, 'Hayward' [green-fleshed], and Actinidia chinensis var. chinensis, 'Zesy002' [gold-fleshed]) are hosts for three invasive tephritid fruit fly species that may enter...

Abstract

The presence of quarantine insect pests in fruit export can impede trade with other countries. Therefore, to reduce the risk of possible quarantine pests in exported fruit, postharvest disinfestation treatment is essential. This study investigated the effects of vapor heat treatment (VHT) on...

Abstract

Out of 60 quarantine insect pests in Korea, 42 species are classified into tephritid fruit flies. Most of these fruit flies are attracted to two natural products, methyl eugenol (ME) or raspberry ketone. Paraffin wax has been devised to formulate these lures. The formulated lures were applied to...

Abstract

First instar larvae (early-, middle- and late-age), second instar larvae (early- and late-age), and third instar larvae (early-, middle- and late-age) of Bactrocera dorsalis and B. cucurbitae were immersed in hot water at 45.0°C in order to investigate the effect of age within each larval instar...

AbstractFull Text

Background: Tephritid fruit flies are serious agricultural pests. Knowledge of the host status of different fruits and vegetables is needed in support of the development of systems approaches to facilitate commodity exports as well as to readily permit quarantine regulatory officials to assess the...

Abstract

To compare relative cold treatment tolerance across the economically important tephritid fruit flies (Diptera: Tephritidae), Bactrocera carambolae Drew & Hancock, Bactrocera correcta (Bezzi), Bactrocera cucurbitae (Coquillett), four populations of Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel), Bactrocera zonata ...

Abstract

Cold storage is used to preserve fruit quality after harvest during transportation in marketing channels. Low temperature can be a stressor for insects that reduces survivorship, and cold storage may contribute to the efficacy of postharvest quarantine treatments such as irradiation against...

Abstract

Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) produces a low-oxygen (O2) environment that can increase produce shelf life by decreasing product respiration and growth of pathogens. However, low O2 is known to increase insect tolerance to irradiation, and the use of MAP with products treated by irradiation...
