Vapor-heat treatment of carambolas infested with Caribbean fruit fly Diptera: Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Washington, 92 2: Evaluation of protein bait formulations for the Caribbean fruit fly Diptera: Journal of Agricultural Research We genotyped A.

Abamectin bait for Caribbean fruit fly Diptera: The adult of A. The larval descriptions in this publication were made from reared and verified specimens from the U.

Biology and Ecology Top of page As in many Anastrepha spp. The writer has never seen any specimens collected in the field that agreed with these hybrid specimens, and it is rather doubtful that such crossing takes place in nature.

Distribution Maps of Plant Pests, No. Development times are prolonged in cool weather. University of Florida, Gainesville. The adult is a small yellow-brown fly that can be as long as 12—14 mm, with rather long, patterned wings.

Further details may be available for individual references in the Distribution Table Details section which can be selected by going to Generate Report. The names Anastrepha unipuncta and Anastrepha longimacula are recognized as synonyms.


Ethylene dibromide was previously widely used as a fumigant, but is now generally withdrawn because of its carcinogenicity. Anterior spiracles slightly asymmetrical, with a median depression; 12 to 13 tubules present. Fed flies displayed little or no pattern of feeding activity from d old.

Antenna not extended to ventral facial margin. Eggs are laid singly and hatch in about two to three days; the larval feeding period occupies 10 to 14 days, and pupation about the same.

Caribbean fruit fly (Anastrepha suspensa)

Because of the geographic separation of many of its native locations and anecdotal descriptions of regional differences in host preferences, there have been questions about the anastepha structure of A.

One larva identified as A.

Journal of Chemical Ecology Their Identification and Bionomics. Gamma-ray irradiation has also been investigated as a quarantine treatment against A.

Dorsal spinules absent from A1-A8. Field evaluation of attractants in the trapping of Anastrepha spp. Genetic diversity was analyzed using F ST and analysis of molecular variance anasrepha revealed low genetic diversity between Florida and Caribbean samples and also between citrus and noncitrus samples. The first method involves limited spraying of groves and adjacent areas with pesticide baits.

Pharyngeal skeleton of A. Another biological control method involves the release of large numbers of laboratory-reared sterile flies. The possibility of using autolysed protein with an insecticide Smith and Nannan, has not been tested for Anastrepha spp. Trapping Guidelines for area-wide fruit fly programmes.


Tephritidae of America north of Mexico. Qnastrepha Back to Top Nearly hosts have been recorded for Caribbean fruit fly to date, including several Citrus species.

It may also be possible to use autolysed protein, as used for Bactrocera spp. Photograph by Division of Plant Industry.

We conclude that A. Although this classical biological control technique is effective in reducing Caribbean fruit fly populations, it is not an eradication technique.

Fruit Flies of Economic Significance: The main characteristics, however, of each species appear to be constant and allow relatively easy identification.
