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

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...

Abstract

Four introduced Bactrocera species were recorded in the Republic of Nauru in 1992. A programme to eradicate the four species was implemented between October 1998 and December 2000. The objectives were to eradicate the introduced pest fruit flies that were a threat to neighbouring Pacific Island...

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

Fruit flies are not only important fruit pest but also quarantine pest and play an important role in making intelligent plant quarantine decisions. Two species of fruit flies are recorded from Pakistan for the first time, i.e. Bactrocera duplicata [B. duplicatus] and B. signata. Some already known...

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

Bactrocera dorsalis and five other Bactrocera species (Bactrocera latifrons, Bactrocera tau, Bactrocera lateriataenia, Bactrocera scutellata and Bactrocera cucurbitae) were identified by PCR-DGGE method based on the gene analysis of mtDNA CO II and 16S rDNA. The results showed PCR-DGGE was a rapid...

Abstract

Evidence is presented from Hawaii to show that two varieties of Sesbania grandiflora, known to be hosts for the bean bud borer and bean butterfly, are also hosts to the fruit flies Dacus cucurbitae, D. dorsalis and Ceratitis capitata. It is thought that this should strengthen the prohibition...

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...
