Hymenopteran Parasitoids on Fruit-infesting Tephritidae (Diptera) in Latin America and the Southern United States: Diversity, Distribution, Taxonomic Status and their use in Fruit Fly Biological
TLDR
The most pressing needs related to fruit fly biological control in areas of the Neotropics where fruit fly populations severely restrict the development of commercial fruit growing are discussed. Expand
Hymenopterous Larval–Pupal and Pupal Parasitoids of Anastrepha Flies (Diptera: Tephritidae) in Mexico
TLDR
The surveyed wild and cultivated plant species in search of fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae) parasitoids during 4 years (1993‐1996) in the state of Veracruz, Mexico found 15 species infested by Anastrepha larvae, and identified 10 native and exotic larval‐pupal parasitoid species. Expand
Parasitoids of medfly, Ceratitis capitata, and related tephritids in Kenyan coffee: a predominantly koinobiont assemblage.
TLDR
Most of the parasitoid species recovered during this study are capable of developing on C. capitata, while several also attack C. rosa, one of the notorious pests of tropical and subtropical fruits. Expand
Fruit flies : their biology, natural enemies and control
TLDR
The role of pheromones in the mating system of Anastrepha fruit flies and the sensory physiology of pest fruitflies: conspectus and prospectus and circadian rhythmicity are discussed. Expand
Suppression of a Caribbean Fruit Fly (Anastrepha suspensa(Loew) Diptera: Tephritidae) Population through Augmented Releases of the ParasitoidDiachasmimorpha longicaudata(Ashmead) (Hymenoptera:
TLDR
Augmented releases of D. longicaudatamay be particularly useful in suppressing Caribbean fruit fly populations in areas where more traditional methods such as insecticide-bait sprays and sterile male releases are impractical. Expand
Biological control of Anastrepha spp. (Diptera: Tephritidae) in mango orchards through augmentative releases of Diachasmimorpha longicaudata (Ashmead) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae).
TLDR
Populations of Ana- strepha obliqua McQuart populations were suppressed more effectively by use of parasitoids than those of Anastrepha ludens Loew, perhaps due to the type of host fruits used by each species. 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
Spatial and Temporal Distributions of Parasitoids of Mexican Anastrepha Species (Diptera: Tephritidae) within the Canopies of Fruit Trees
TLDR
In Veracruz State, Mexico, the temporal and spatial distributions of 5 species of parasitic Hymenoptera attacking larvae of 5 Anastrepha species in 7 species of fruit tree canopies were examined to guide biological control efforts. Expand
