Effectiveness of GF-120 Fruit Fly Bait Spray Applied to Border Area Plants for Control of Melon Flies (Diptera: Tephritidae)
TLDR
Application of GF-120 Fruit Fly Bait spray to nonhost plants for melon fly control either be made often enough to overcome loss of attractiveness of bait spray droplets to females or that bait spray be applied to non host plants that are themselves attractive to the females. Expand
An Overview of Pest Species of Bactrocera Fruit Flies (Diptera: Tephritidae) and the Integration of Biopesticides with Other Biological Approaches for Their Management with a Focus on the Pacific
TLDR
An overview of 73 pest species in the genus Bactrocera is presented, recent developments of reduced risk technologies for their control are examined and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Programs that integrate multiple components to manage these pests in tropical and sub-tropical areas are explored. Expand
The distributions of parasitoids (Hymenoptera) of Anastrepha fruit flies (Diptera: Tephritidae) along an altitudinal gradient in Veracruz, Mexico
TLDR
The effect of an expanding agricultural frontier on parasitoid abundance is discussed and the findings related to the design of a fruit fly biological control program that tailors mass releases to parasitoids climate preferences are related. Expand
Synergism between aromatic compounds and green leaf volatiles derived from the host plant underlies female attraction in the oriental fruit moth
Blends of volatile compounds emitted by host plants are known to mediate the attraction of gravid female herbivores to oviposition sites, but the role of individual odor components is still littleExpand
Managing Oriental Fruit Fly (Diptera: Tephritidae), with Spinosad-Based Protein Bait Sprays and Sanitation in Papaya Orchards in Hawaii
TLDR
Results indicate that foliar applications of GF-120 NF Naturalyte Fruit Fly Bait either to all rows, or to every fifth row (every tree) in combination with good sanitation can effectively reduce infestation by B. dorsalis in papaya orchards in Hawaii. Expand
HOW EFFECTIVE IS GF-120 FRUIT FLY BAIT SPRAY APPLIED TO BORDER AREA SORGHUM PLANTS FOR CONTROL OF MELON FLIES (DIPTERA: TEPHRITIDAE)?
TLDR
No significant differences were found between two-sided and four-sided patches of sorghum or between protein-deprived and protein-fed mature females in percentages of released females that found cucumbers in bait-sprayed plots, indicating an overall ineffectiveness of bait spray application. Expand
Field Evaluation of Plant Odor and Pheromonal Combinations for Attracting Plum Curculios
TLDR
Evaluated response of PCs to three synthetic fruit volatiles assessed alone and in combination with GA, as well as the response to GA alone and a no-odor treatment, suggest that BEN at 10 mg/day + GA at 1 mg/ day of release constitutes an attractive lure that may improve the effectiveness of monitoring traps for PCs. Expand
Evaluation of Methyl Eugenol and Cue-Lure Traps with Solid Lure and Insecticide Dispensers for Fruit Fly Monitoring and Male Annihilation in the Hawaii Areawide Pest Management Program
TLDR
FT Mallet ME and C-L wafers with DDVP or Scentry plugs, with or without DDVP vapor tape, are more convenient and safer to handle than standard liquid insecticide formulations used for monitoring and male annihilation programs in Hawaii, and for detections traps used on the U.S. mainland. Expand
Odor-baited trap trees: a new approach to monitoring plum curculio (Coleoptera: Curculionidae).
TLDR
It is concluded that monitoring apples on odor-baited trap trees for fresh ovipositional injury could be a useful new approach for determining need and timing of insecticide application against plum curculio in commercial orchards. Expand
