Eight plant‐derived alkaloids are shown to significantly reduce intake of sugar solutions by adult Phormia regina Meigen. The alkaloids differed in degree of inhibition caused, and their relative effectiveness as deterrents was similar with 2, 4, and 6 day old flies. Results are discussed with reference to current ideas on possible modes of action of plant secondary compounds acting as feeding deterrents to phytophagous insects.
