anxstrepha The Division of Plant Industry of the Florida Department of Agriculture formerly the State Plant Board of Florida and the United States Department of Agriculture expanded the detection program to obtain more information on the distribution and abundance of this strain of A. In Florida, only very ripe citrus has been attacked.

Field evaluation of attractants in the capture of Anastrepha spp. Journal of Economic Entomology, 85 1: Diptera, Tephritidaepests of fruit trees in tropical America.

However, a species of insect, or a particular strain of that species, sometimes acts substantially differently when introduced into new areas and may become a serious pest in those new areas. If you originally registered with a username please use that to sign in.

Various populations of each fruit fly species evidently exhibit variations in this and other characters that need to be taken into account. For most regions, the fruits most liable to carry A. This species is also a pest of loquat [ Eriobotrya japonica ], kumquat [ Fortunella crassifolia ], sapodilla [ Manilkara zapota ] and occasionally infests a variety of other fruits.


Anastrepha suspensa (Caribbean fruit fly)

Biological Control Possibilities for the biological control of A. Hot-air quarantine treatment for ‘Marsh’ white grapefruit infested with Caribbean fruit fly Diptera: During this period A.

These tiny wasps attack fruit flies by laying eggs in the fly larvae. Development times are prolonged in cool weather.

Sutton, Division of Plant Industry. The life cycle includes the egg, three larval stages, pupa and adult. In anqstrepha trade, the major means of dispersal to previously uninfested areas is the transport of fruits containing live larvae. An intensive field survey showed that the larvae were attacking a fairly extensive list of host plants similar to the hosts of the Puerto Rican strain of A.

Ethylene dibromide was previously widely used as a fumigant, but is now generally withdrawn because of its carcinogenicity. Adult As in most other Anastrepha spp.

Posterior spiracles elongated ca. Caribbean fruit fly Diptera: Parasites and predators introduced against arthropod pests. Anal lobe always entire. Dorsal spinules absent from A1-A8.


Caribbean fruit fly – Anastrepha suspensa

Journal of Agricultural Research Pest-free areas can be established for A. Within its normal range of distribution the economic damage caused by this species has been relatively small, although guavas, roseapples and Surinam cherries are severely attacked as a rule. A revision of the genus Anastrepha based on a study of the wings and on the length of the ovipositor sheath Diptera: A solitary, endoparasitic braconid wasp, Diachasmimorpha longicaudata Ashmeadparasitizes larvae of the Caribbean fruit fly and trapping data has indicated a 40 percent reduction in Caribbean fruit fly populations.

Characters of the larvae and pupae of certain fruit flies. Tephritidaethe Caribbean fruit fly, is indigenous to Florida and the Greater Antilles where it causes economic losses in fruit crops, including citrus. It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.

Guava subsequently proved to be the preferred host of A.
