Resistance of citrus fruit to attack by the Caribbean fruit fly, Anastrepha suspensa (Loew), was attributed to allelopathic essential oils in the flavedo region of the peel. Hatchability of eggs laid between peel oil glands was significantly greater than that of eggs laid into glands. Mortality occurred principally in the 1st larval instar, and most larvae died before reaching the albedo (the non‐oily region of the peel). Grapefruit were more susceptible to larval development than oranges, and… Expand
Survival and Development of Immature Stages of the Mediterranean Fruit Fly (Diptera: Tephritidae) in Citrus Fruit
TLDR
Fruit peel was the most critical parameter for larval development and survival, drastically affecting larval survival (inducing very high mortality rates), and pulp chemical properties had rather small effects on larval and pupal survival and developmental time. Expand
Host Status of Purple Passionfruit for the Mediterranean Fruit Fly (Diptera: Tephritidae)
TLDR
L Laboratory tests suggest that purple passionfruit is a non-host for C. capitata, and trap data indicated that the Mediterranean fruit fly is not present in the principal passionfruit production regions. Expand
Toxic effect of citrus peel constituents on Anastrepha fraterculus Wiedemann and Ceratitis capitata Wiedemann immature stages.
TLDR
Evidence of chemical resistance mechanisms that could account for the nonhost condition of lemon for Anastrepha fraterculus and larvae is provided. Expand
Effect of citrus peel chemicals on Bactrocera tryonilarval survival
TLDR
The results of this study open up opportunities for incorporating B. tryoni resistance mechanisms into citrus through minor peel property changes which would not impact on the eating attributes of the fruit. Expand
Determination of host status of citrus fruits against the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) (Diptera: Tephritidae)
TLDR
Punctures in the skin had a significant impact on the degree of infestation in both citrus and non-citrus control fruit. Expand
Effect of tomato fruit cultivar and ripening stage on Bactrocera tryoni (Froggatt) egg and larval survival
TLDR
The difference in timing of larval mortality with ripening stage provides indirect evidence of active fruit defence which is strongest in immature‐green fruit, less in colour‐break fruit and absent in fully‐ripe fruit. Expand
Oviposition behaviour and larval development of Anastrepha fraterculus from Argentina in citrus
TLDR
Citrus peel physicochemical attributes are considered the main components conferring partial or even total resistance to fruit fly infestation and may have affected the specific levels of resistance of these citrus species to infestation by A. fraterculus. Expand
Host Susceptibility of Citrus Cultivars to Queensland Fruit Fly (Diptera: Tephritidae)
TLDR
The major citrus crops commercially cultivated in Australia have a relatively low susceptibility to B. tryoni, with Eureka lemons being a particularly poor host for this tephritid fruit fly. Expand
Toxicity of citrus essential oils against Ceratitis capitata (Diptera: Tephritidae) larvae
TLDR
In tests of commercially purchased chemicals, the oxygenated components of essential oils were more toxic than hydrocarbons but their low concentration in citrus essential oils could not affect the toxic activity of essential oil. Expand
Mortality Assessment of Botanical Oils on Anastrepha fraterculus (Wiedemann, 1830) Applied in Fruits Under Laboratory Conditions
TLDR
There was a significant reduction of the amount of pupae in the second generation of Anastrepha fraterculus, and botanic oils presented potential for suppression of fruit flies; however, further studies are necessary to test and make them feasible under field conditions. Expand

Toxicity of citrus oils to several stored-product insects: laboratory evaluation.
TLDR
TLC analyses and topical applications to the insects showed that the active component of the lemon peel was not a residue of the insecticides and acaricides generally used as prehavest treatments, or of the fungicides used as postharvest treatments. Expand
Citrus oils as protectants of black-eyed peas against cowpea weevils: laboratory evaluation.
TLDR
There was no insect emergence from peas treated with lemon oil after the treated peas had aged 87 days, and emergence was low compared with that of the control even 312 days after the peas were treated. Expand
Infestations of Anastrepha suspensa in fruit on Key West, Florida and adjacent islands
TLDR
Random samples of fresh fallen or ripe-picked fruits in the lower Florida keys were collected weekly and held to determine the presence of larvae of the Caribbean fruit fly, Anastrepha suspensa (Loew), and the 2 hosts that contributed most to the fly population. Expand
Physiology of Tree Resistance to Insects
TLDR
The concept of tree resistance to insects is critically examined and the edge of the physiological mechanisms involved in resistance is reviewed to stimulate more discussion of the problem and perhaps productive research among the three disciplines. Expand
The Chemical Constituents of Citrus Fruits
TLDR
The chemical determinations most frequently reported on citrus fruits are the soluble solids content and the acidity, as well as the ascorbic acid content, because of its obvious nutritional significance. Expand
