BIOCHEMICAL RESISTANCE OF CITRUS TO FRUIT FLIES. DEMONSTRATION AND ELUCIDATION OF RESISTANCE TO THE CARIBBEAN FRUIT FLY, ANASTREPHA SUSPENSA
TLDR
Volatile components of the peel oil rather than high boiling fractions appear to account for oil toxicity, and grapefruit and lemons were virtually immune to successful attack by this fly. Expand
Suppression of Mediterranean fruit flies by oriental fruit flies in mixed infestations in guava.
TLDR
With superimposed oviposition of oriental fruit flies, Dacus dorsalis Hendel, or Mediterranean Fruit flies, in either sequence in fresh guava fruit in the laboratory, following Oviposition by the other species, oriental Fruit flies completely or almost completely suppressed the development of Mediterranean fruit flies. Expand
Alternative to the Use of Probit 9 Mortality as a Criterion for Quarantine Treatments of Fruit Fly (Diptera: Tephritidae)-Infested Fruit
TLDR
It is recommended that a maximum infestation level in shipped fruit be set (as an acceptable risk limit) and that this infestationlevel be used as the criterion for quarantined fruit. Expand
pH Effect on the attractiveness of a corn hydrolysate to the Mediterranean fruit fly and several Anastrepha species (Diptera: Tephritidae).
Field trials were conducted to determine the attractiveness of aqueous formulations of a protein bait, NuLure, as compared with a standard bait of pelletized torula yeast plus sodium borate for theExpand
Female Medfly Refractory Period: Effect of Male Reproductive Status
Although it is not known whether wild Mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis capitata) females mate more than once with wild or sterile males under natural conditions, laboratory research andExpand
ACOUSTICAL ASPECTS OF BEHAVIOR OF MEDITERRANEAN FRUIT FLY, CERATITIS CAPITATA: ANALYSIS AND IDENTIFICATION OF COURTSHIP SOUNDS
TLDR
The ♂ Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann), produces 3 distinctly different sounds prior to a successful mating, one of which is a continuous calling sound of very low amplitude and the other two are a series of pulses. Expand
Reproduction of the Mediterranean Fruit Fly:Frequency of Mating in the Laboratory
TLDR
Tests of mating behavior in the laboratory showed that Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) males are polygamous; however, 40% of the females did not remate, and female receptivity to remating apparently correlated with the volume of stored sperm in the spermathecae. Expand
Analysis, synthesis, formulation, and field testing of three major components of male mediterranean fruit fly pheromone
Three major components, ethyi-(E)-3-octenoate, geranyl acetate, and (E,E)-α-farnesene, emitted as volatiles by laboratory-reared and wild male medflies were collected and analyzed qualitatively andExpand
Sex Pheromones of the Oriental Fruit Fly and the Melon Fly: Mating Behavior, Bioassay Method, and Attraction of Females by Live Males and by Suspected Pheromone Glands of Males
TLDR
Sexually mature virgin females of the oriental fruit fly and the melon fly were attracted by live males of their respective species in laboratory bioassays in 16-dm3 cages. Expand
