Responses ofRhagoletis pomonella (Walsh) (Diptera: Tephritidae) flies to host fruit visual stimuli (apples or models of apples) and chemical stimuli (synthetic apple volatile blend) were studied in semidwarf field-caged apple trees. Three different fruit or model densities (1, 4, or 16 fruit or models/ tree) and two odor release rates [ca. 0.7μg/hr (close to the natural release rate of a ripe apple) and ca. 500μg/hr (amount of odor released by commercially sold apple maggot traps)] were tested… CONTINUE READING
