Fruit in a hard or semiripe condition is better for oviposition than fully ripened fruit. 1) The fruit in this consignment was produced in Tasmania or the Riverland which are recognised as free from Queensland fruit fly (Bactrocera tryoni) and Mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis capitata). Fruit Flies of Economic Significance: Their Identification and Bionomics. Mexican fruit fly, A. ludens has a much longer ovipositor (3.35 - 4.7 mm long in A. ludens). Some hosts have been recorded as medfly hosts only under laboratory conditions and may not be attacked in the field. Figure 19. Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann). Sterile Fruit Fly Release: This control method relies on flooding the area of an Larval cephalo-pharyngeal skeleton of the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann). Harvesting before complete maturity also is practiced in Mediterranean areas generally infested with this fruit fly. During warm weather eggs hatch in 1.5 to three days. Fruit Fly, common name for two families of true (two-winged) flies, the larvae of which feed on fresh or decaying vegetable matter. During June–August 2010, the largest outbreak since the 1997-1998 infestations was discovered and eradicated in Palm Beach County in the Boca Raton area (FDACS 2010a, 2010c); California in 1975, and periodically since 1980. Adult male Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann). If collected larvae must be killed, they should be placed in hot water and then transferred to 70% isopropenol. The Problem. Eyes are reddish purple (fluoresce green, turning blackish within 24 hours after death). White or taking on the color of the food it ingests. Both sexes are sexually active throughout the day.

The cephalo-pharyngeal skeleton has a large convex mouth hook each side, approximately 2X hypostome in length. Head and buccal carinae of larva of the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann). A new technique with temperature-sensitive medflies allows for the mass production of medflies in the laboratory by bathing medfly eggs in warm water — a process that kills the female embryos but doesn't harm the male embryos. 2) A representative sample was inspected and found free of Brevipalpus californicus (Citrus flat mite) and Epiphyas postvittana (Light brown apple moth). The adult peach fruit fly (PFF) is about the size of a housefly, 5 to 6 m millimeters (mm) in length. Its larvae feed and develop on many deciduous, subtropical, and tropical fruits and some vegetables. Figure 15. Anastrepha ludens (Diptera: Tephritidae). Figure 23.

The hypostomium has prominent, rounded subhypostomium; post-hypostomial plates curved dorsally to the dorsal bridge, fused with sclerotized rays of central area of dorsal wing plate. in length. The caudal end has bifurcate or paired dorsal papillules (D1 and D2) on small mount of relatively flat plate; intermediate papillules (I1-2) as a line of fused elevations on a very enlarged subspiracular tubercle, plus a remote I3 at approximately 45 degrees from I1-2; L1 on the median edge of the caudal end; V1 not prominent; posterior spiracles elongate (4.5 to 5X width), with dorsal and ventral spiracles angled away from relatively planar median spiracle; interspiracular processes (hairs) usually not branched; anal lobe bifid or entire. Drosophila melanogaster is a species of fly (the taxonomic order Diptera) in the family Drosophilidae. Steck. Figure 9. The anterior of the dorsal bridge has a prominent sclerotized point. Reinfestations in the same areas leads some experts to believe the California infestion was never eradicated but was instead reduced to subdetectable levels that periodically resurface (Dawson et al. In the pupal stage, the males can be irradiated to render them sexually sterile (USDA 2000). Incidence of the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann), in Florida, 1929-1998. The improved version of the McPhail trap uses a combination of three chemicals to attract male and female fruit flies. Anastrepha ludens. In addition to reduction of crop yield, infested areas have the additional expense of control measures and costly sorting processes for both fresh and processed fruit and vegetables. Rhode RH, Simon J, Perdomo A, Gutierrez J, Dowling Jr. CF, Linquist DA. Christenson LD, Foote RH. Distribution. Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata, 71(3):257-261. The Mediterranean fruit fly (medfly), Ceratitis capitata (Diptera: Tephritidae) is considered one of the most important pests for citrus fruits. Males often show sexual activity four days after emergence, and copulation has been observed five days after emergence. Figure 18.

Miscellaneous Publications, No. 1981 (publication date not given). The number of eggs found at any time in the reproductive organs is no indication of the total number of eggs an individual female is capable of depositing, as new eggs are being formed continually throughout her adult life. Back and Pemberton (1915) noted that this period may be increased to at least 19 days when the daily temperature means drop to about 69 to 71°F (20.6 to 21.7°C). Figure 2. Common Name. (CARI) Caribbean Pest Information Network. Eggs are deposited under the skin of fruit which is just beginning to ripen, often in an area where some break in the skin already has occurred. If you have any questions, please call the toll-free Mediterranean fruit fly helpline at 1-888-397-1517. I. Liquido NJ, Shinoda LA, Cunningham RT.

Larval Diagnosis The primary diagnostic characters for Mediterranean fruit fly larvae involve the anterior spiracles, the buccal carinae, and the prominent subspiracular tubercles of the caudal end. The color is yellowish with brown tinge, especially on abdomen, legs, and some markings on wings. When the eggs hatch, the larvae promptly begin eating. Fruit fly is one of the most serious pests of citrus. When it has been detected in Florida, California, and Texas, especially in recent years, each infestation necessitated intensive and massive eradication and detection procedures so that the pest did not become established. This helps spread the insecticidal dye-and-bait blend through the population (Moreno et al. Females usually die soon after they cease to oviposit. Adults die within four days if they cannot obtain food. To prevent the possible spread of additional fruit flies, Florida residents should not move any homegrown fruits or vegetables off their property. The thorax is creamy white to yellow with a characteristic pattern of black blotches. When the daily mean temperature averages from 76 to 78°F (24.4 to 25.6°C), most females are ready to mate from six to eight days after eclosion. Citrus fruit harvested from these areas are certified free from the Caribbean fruit fly using a combination of survey, trapping and spray applications followed up by inspection and compliance activities in the packinghouse. Conley KL. Ceratitis hispanica De Brême But when given the choice, these annoying pests actually prefer citrus like oranges, limes, and lemons. Life history of the Mediterranean fruit fly from the standpoint of parasite introduction. Scientific Name. Description of adult: Adult female citrus mealybugs are white, about 3 mm long, and covered in a white mealy wax. Ceratitis. The species of economic importance are: (i) Bactrocera facialis (except the Niuas); (ii) Pacific fruit fly (Bactrocera xanthodes), (iii) Bactrocera kirki; (iv) Bactrocera species near passiflorae (Niuas only); and (v) Bactrocera distincta. Mediterranean fruit fly impact in Central America. Currently listed as eradicated from these states. Larval life may be as short as six to 10 days when the mean temperatures average 77 to 79°F (25 to 26.1°C). Adult: The adult fly is 3.5 to 5 mm in length. from all other species of Tephritidae occurring in Australia. Medflies often share regurgitated food. Oceania. Dorsocentral bristles are anterior of the halfway point between supraalar and acrostichal bristles. Studies in Hawaiian fruit flies. The Drosophila melanogaster, also known as the “common fruit fly” or “vinegar fly” is a species of fly in the Drosophilidae family. Pictorial key to fruit fly larvae of the family Tephritidae. Fruit is placed in heavy plastic bags and removed to a local landfill to be buried. The apex of the wing's anal cell is elongate. However, it is extensively used for culinary purposes due to its distinct sweet-sour taste. Previous scientific names: Trypeta capitata . Pupa: The pupa is cylindrical, 4 to 4.3 mm long, dark reddish brown, and resembles a swollen grain of wheat.

Newly emerged adults are not sexually mature. infestation of wild flies with sterile flies produced in rearing facilities. The fruit contains 12 segments and about 30 seeds. 2012. Memoirs of the American Entomological Society 12: 1-161. Proceedings of the Florida State Horticultural Society 70: 67-69. Consequently, the following characters can be used to distinguish . Mediterranean fruit fly. There are dark streaks and spots in middle of wing cells in and anterior to anal cell. 77. Larval identification is extremely difficult, so that when feasible it is best to rear them to adults for identification. United States Department of Agriculture Bulletin 640: 1-43. Photograph by Peggy Greb, USDA; www.forestryimages.org. Pomelo. Knowledge of the hosts in one country often aids in correctly predicting those which are most likely to be infested in a newly infested country, but what may be a preferred host in one part of the world may be a poor host in another. (NAPPO) North American Plant Protection Organization. Thus larvae require 14 to 26 days to reach maturity in a ripe lemon, as compared with 10 to 15 days in a green peach. Egg: The egg is very slender, curved, 1 mm long, smooth and shiny white. Copulation may occur at any time throughout the day. Figure 8. Photograph by Scott Bauer, USDA. DIAGNOSIS . Although it may be a major pest of citrus, often it is a more serious pest of some deciduous fruits, such as peach, pear, and apple. Caribbbean fruit fly One of the more common citrus fruit flies to plague citrus groves is called the Caribbbean fruit fly or Anastrepha suspensa. Soil Drenching: The soil under host trees with fruit known or suspected to be infested with medfly larvae and host trees under adjacent properties will be treated. 1971. There are usually nine to 10 tubules, although there may be seven to 11. Plus treatment strategies change in an environment of public concern about aerial application of insecticidal baits. Some adults may survive up to six months or more under favorable conditions of food (fruit, honeydew, or plant sap), water, and cool temperatures. Fruit Stripping: Fruit will be stripped from all host trees on a known larval properties and within 200 meters (656 feet). The anterior spiracles are usually nearly straight on dorsal edge of tubule row (often more straight than illustrated). The kind and condition of the fruit often influence the length of the larval stage. The species originated in sub-Saharan Africa and is not known to be established in the continental United States. C. capitata . 601 pp. Characters of the larvae and pupae of certain fruit flies.
