The biology and identification of trypetid larvae Diptera: Cephalo-pharyngeal skeleton with relatively large mouth hook length 2 X width with hypostome of nearly equal width; dorsal bridge enlarged; pharyngeal plate longer than dorsal wing plate and znastrepha a long pharyngeal support.

The preferred hosts are Myrtaceae, especially Eugenia spp. During this period A. One or more of the features that are needed to show you the maps functionality are not available in the web browser that you are using.

This raises the question as to what assurance there is that the Puerto Rican strain, with “some developed taste” for citrus, if established in Florida, would not become a major pest of citrus in the absence of its preferred hosts. Development of pheromone-based trapping systems for monitoring and controlling tephritid fruit flies in Florida.

Caribbean fruit fly (Anastrepha suspensa)

Response of Caribbean fruit fly Diptera: Suspenssa of Economic Entomology, 77 1: Cultural Control and Sanitary Methods Control can be aided considerably by good cultural practices, for example, by gathering all fallen and infected host fruits, and destroying them. Genetic diversity was analyzed using F ST and analysis of molecular variance and revealed low genetic diversity between Florida and Caribbean samples and also between citrus and noncitrus samples. Identification of fruit fly larvae frequently intercepted at ports of entry of the United States.

Adult As in most other Anastrepha spp. Visitations to food lures by starved and fed females were mirrored by egg production.

This species is also a pest of loquat [ Eriobotrya japonica ], kumquat [ Fortunella crassifolia ], sapodilla [ Manilkara zapota ] and occasionally infests a variety of other fruits. Biological control of the Caribbean fruit fly Diptera: Annona cherimoyaJamaica apple Carica papayapapaya Carissa grandifloranatal plum Citrus mitiscalamondin Eugenia unifloraSurinam cherry Fortunella sp.

Parasites and predators introduced against arthropod pests. On 6 Novembertwo larvae, identified as being Anastrepha sp. Berryhill at San Juan, Puerto Rico, in Augustwhich is the result of the crossing of the two species. If certification if based on negative trapping in standard season December end of harvest seasonthe area must be at least acres and located three miles from residential or other areas containing preferred hosts.


In particular, for positive identification it is essential to dissect the aculeus the distal, piercing part of the ovipositor that is normally retracted into the oviscape of a female specimen. Meanwhile, investigations were conducted to determine what hosts might be attacked under caged conditions, as well as under field conditions, to determine the results of the crossing of several species of Anastrepha under laboratory conditions, to work out the life histories of the species found to occur in the Florida Keys, and to develop control and eradication techniques.

Anastrepha suspensa was described originally from specimens collected in Cuba. Further details may be available for individual references in the Distribution Table Details section which can be selected by going to Generate Report.

Tephritidae against wild populations in urban hosts adjacent to commercial citrus. Pest-free areas can be established for A.

Revista Brasileira de Entomologia, 32 2: For that reason A. Spinosad bait for the Caribbean fruit fly Diptera: Tephritidae mortality induced by shrink-wrapping infested anastrdpha. Caribbean fruit fly status, economic importance, and control Diptera: Nearly hosts have been recorded for Caribbean fruit fly to date, including several Citrus species.

The susceptibility of some fruits to attack may also be reduced by the use of plant growth regulators gibberellic acid Greany et al. CAB International, pp.
