Chemical Control Due to the variable regulations around (de-)registration of pesticides, we are for the moment not including any specific chemical control recommendations. Bactrocera carambolae, also known as the carambola fruit fly, is a fruit fly species in the family Tephritidae, and is native to Asia. Insecti-cide applications to control fruit flies are done on a calendar basis and are widespread. Eradication programs were conducted from 1997 to 2001, but failed. ABSTRACT: Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) has invaded Jiangxi, a subtropical area of China and poses a serious threat to its host crops, especially citrus fruits. Chemical Composition and Behavioural Responses of Male and Female Bactrocera dorsalis to their Volatile Emissions Bactrocera dorsalis, (Tephritidae) presented a grave threat to a broad range of fruit and vegetables in the tropics, including Tanzania. Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) ... of pre- and post-harvest management gave 100% control of B. dorsalis. From 1998 to 2006, B.dorsalis was recovered from 29 different host fruit from the five Society Islands: Tahiti, Moorea, Raiatea, Tahaa, and Huahine. Insects have mastered the art of using semiochemicals as communication signals and rely on them to find mates, host or habitat. Status of Bactrocera dorsalis: Bactrocera dorsalis (Oriental Fruit Fly) is a quarantine pest of Asian origin capable of infesting various commercial fruit crops (400 recorded hosts).It was previously described as the Invader fruit fly (Bactrocera invadens).It is now found in … The oriental fruit fly (OFF), Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel), is a major pest of fruits in Thailand causing annual losses to the fruit industry esti-mated in millions of dollars as a result of significant yield reduction and market restrictions. When methyl eugenol (B. dorsalis male attractant) was mixed with basil oil, ... fore, it can be used as an alternative to chemical pest control (Olson and Bidlack 1997). Bactrocera dorsalis is part of a larger species complex and PCR analysis indicated that, indeed, piggyBac exists throughout the complex having nucleotide sequence identities of 92% among all the elements sequenced, with individual identities of 96–99% to one another and the T. ni 3E1 piggyBac (Handler, unpublished data). This leads to poor commercialization in domestic markets and quarantine restrictions from importing countries. Monitoring Bactrocera dorsalis (BD) Status of BD: Bactrocera dorsalis (Oriental Fruit Fly) is a quarantine pest of Asian origin capable of infesting various commercial fruit crops (400 recorded hosts). 3, p. 457. It is now found in 65 countries and in most sub-Saharan countries. fruit fly Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) Daifeng Cheng1†, Zijun Guo1†, Markus Riegler2, Zhiyong Xi3,4, Guangwen Liang1 and Yijuan Xu1* Abstract Background: Symbiotic bacteria affect insect physiology and ecology. In past years, this species has invaded South America via the trade of fruits from Indonesia. Semiochemical is a generic term used for a chemical substance that influences the behaviour of an organism. The Oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel), is among the most destructive fruit/vegetable-eating agricultural pests in the world, particularly in Asian countries such as China.

They may also mediate insecticide resistance within their hosts and thereby impact pest and vector control practices. 43, Issue. The sterile insect technique may be implemented to control populations of the oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) (Diptera: Tephritidae), when environmental concerns preclude widespread use of chemical attractants or toxicants. Vc concentration in orange juice differed among treatments (F 3, 11 = 32.053, P < 0.001). 44:279-302. The oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) (Diptera: Tephritidae), is one of the most important economic pests in tropical and subtropical areas of the world, where it causes serious damage to fruit production.
