Development of a Pupal Color-Based Genetic Sexing Strain of the Melon Fly, Bactrocera cucurbitae (Coquillett) (Diptera: Tephritidae)
Abstract The first genetic sexing system for the melon fly, Bactrocera cucurbitae (Coquillett), based on pupal color was developed. The recessive white pupae mutant, wh, was used in a putativeExpand

Sperm transfer in normal and gamma-irradiated, laboratory-reared Mediterranean fruit flies (Diptera : Tephritidae)
Normal, unirradiated females of Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann), were mated with normal or gamma-irradiated males. In natural uninterrupted matings, mean durations in copulaExpand

Effect of Limiting Concentrations of Growth Factors in Mass Rearing Diets for Ceratitis capitata Larvae (Diptera: Tephritidae)
Abstract Effects of growth factors on Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) larval development were investigated using C. capitata #1 diet as a control diet. C. capitata #1 diet is a chemical base diet withExpand

Temporal control of gene expression from endogenous and exogenously-introduced DNAs in early embryogenesis of Xenopus laevis.
We review here our studies on temporal control of the expression of genes in zygotic nucleus and of exogenously introduced genes in Xenopus embryos. For zygotic gene expression, our studies haveExpand

Irradiation of Adult Epiphyas postvittana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae): Egg Sterility in Parental and F1 Generations
ABSTRACT Adult Epiphyas postvittana Walker were irradiated using a Cobalt 60 source to determine the dose needed to achieve complete egg sterility of mated female moths, and egg sterility of femaleExpand

Distance-dependent capture probability of male Mediterranean fruit flies in trimedlure-baited traps in Hawaii
Abstract Many countries operate regional trapping programs for the detection of exotic tephritid fruit flies, which because of their polyphagous habits pose a serious threat to fruit and vegetableExpand

Capture of Bactrocera Males (Diptera: Tephritidae) in Parapheromone-Baited Traps: Performance of Solid Dispensers with Different Loadings of Attractants and Toxicant
Bactrocera cucurbitae (Coquillett) and B. dorsalis (Hendel) (Diptera: Teph- ritidae) are important agricultural pests of the Pacific region. Detection of these species relies on traps baited withExpand
