The tritrophic interactions between mangoes ( Mangifera indica), two frugivorous fly species of great economic significance, Bactrocera invadens and Ceratitis cosyra, and weaver ants ( Oecophylla longinoda ) were studied in Benin. We investigated whether O cophylla cues affect B. invadens and C. cosyra oviposition behaviour compared to natural conditions. Results sh ow that on un-marked fruits, both C. cosyra and B. invadens adults have different active periods and length of oviposition, both… CONTINUE READING
