Abstract A meridic diet (Ceratitis capitata #1) containing corncob as a bulking agent was developed and found comparable to diets currently used for rearing the larvae of the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann). The composition of C. capitata #1 diet (mg/50 g diet) is essential amino acids 636; arginine, 106.8; histidine, 45.6; isoleucine, 56.4; leucine, 108; lysine, 58.8; methionine, 27.6; phenylalanine, 70.8; threonine, 54; tryptophan, 28.8; valine, 79.2; non-essential… Expand
