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...

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

The use of vapor heat treatment (VHT) to disinfest oriental fruit flies (Bactrocera dorsalis) and melon fruit flies (B. cucurbitae) from Chinese papaya fruits (Carica papaya) destined for export to foreign countries was investigated. The tested papaya cultivar was Sunrise Solo from Hainan, China....

Abstract

Metabolic stress disinfection and disinfestation (MSDD) is a postharvest treatment designed to control pathogens and arthropod pests on commodities that combines short cycles of low pressure/vacuum and high CO2 with ethanol vapor. Experiments were conducted to evaluate the effect of MSDD treatment...

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...
