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

Bactrocera latifrons (Hendel) (Diptera: Tephritidae) is a quarantine pest of several solanaceous crops and tropical fruits that are treated using irradiation before export from Hawaii to the U.S. mainland. A dose of 150 Gy is approved as a generic irradiation treatment for tephritid fruit flies,...

Abstract

Bactrocera latifrons (Hendel) is a pest of Asian origin, first detected in Africa in 2006. We assessed the host utilization of this quarantine pest in Morogoro region, eastern central Tanzania, by collecting a wide range of cultivated and wild host plants of species belonging to Solanaceae and...

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...

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

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

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...
