Globally, fruit flies (Diptera: Tephrtitidae) are among the most important pests of fruits and vegetables. In addition to the polyphagous nature of some fruit fly species, several are considered highly invasive, aided by globalization of trade and poor quarantine infrastructure in the certain countries. Fruit fly pests attack to host species causing direct damage, and in addition to the direct losses, indirect losses are also attributed due to quarantine restrictions imposed enormously. The…

Rearing of Bactrocera zonata (Diptera: Tephritidae) for parasitoids production and managing techniques for fruit flies in mango orchards
Among the various food ingredients, torula yeast and brewer’s yeast were found to be more promising than Nu-Lure and protein hydrolysate for rearing of B. zonata for parasitoid production and pest control, and combining control tactics could be a very important aspect of an action plan for fruit fly population suppression.
Revision of species of the genus Tephritis Latreille 1804 (Diptera: Tephritidae) with entire apical spot.
Eleven species of the genus Tephritis with an uncommon banded wing pattern and/or solid apical crossband/spot instead of apical fork, mainly from the Palaearctic Middle East, are described and keyed, including T. cameo, T. gladius, and T. ochroptera were swept from Cousinia spp.
Monitoring of Population Dynamics and Fruits Infestation of Tephritid Fruit Flies(Diptera: Tephritidae) in Guava ( Psidium guajava L.) Orchard
The results of this study have important implications on the decision - making process for the safe and effective monitoring and management strategies to give information on fruit fly activity in an area to determine whether the number of pests are increasing or decreasing in the locality.
Host Preference and Performance of Fruit Flies Bactrocera zonata (Saunders) and Bactrocera cucurbitae (Coquillett) (Diptera: Tephritidae) For Various Fruits and Vegetables
Results confirm that the host choice and preference of the fruit flies have the impacts on both pre-harvest and post- harvest countermeasures of horticultural crops and imply that host preference of fruit flies can shift towards suitable hosts and if hosts which provide a proper breeding situation become scarce then alternative hosts are accepted.
