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...

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

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...

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

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...
