Fruits may also be treated in transit by cold treatment for example, 13, 15 or 17 days at 0. Methyl bromide fumigation quarantine treatment for carambolas infested with Caribbean fruit fly Diptera: It may also be possible to use autolysed protein, as used for Bactrocera spp. Close mobile search navigation Article navigation.
Adult female Caribbean fruit fly, Anastrepha suspensa Loew. Seven DNA microsatellite markers were anastdepha to characterize the population genetic structure of A. The investigated seven loci displayed from 5 to 19 alleles, with expected heterozygosities ranging from 0. Tephritidaethe Caribbean fruit fly, is indigenous to Florida and the Greater Antilles where it causes economic losses in fruit crops, including citrus.
Fed flies displayed little or no pattern of feeding activity from d old. Hot-air quarantine treatment for carambolas infested with Caribbean fruit fly Diptera: Psidium guajava common guava Caged hosts in Florida before Mating between the sterile lab-reared flies and fertile wild flies interrupts the native population because offspring are not produced. International Atomic Energy Agency, 47 pp. When the fly is in the pupal stage, the wasp egg hatches and the larva begins feeding on the fly pupa, killing the fly before it can develop into an adult.
There are several methods available for certification under bait-spray provisions: Journal of Economic Entomology, 85 4: Anastrepha suspensaattractantNu-Lure. Its geographic distribution and host range are very similar to two other species: It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.

Damage Back to Top Within its normal range of distribution the economic damage caused susprnsa this species has been relatively small, although guavas, roseapples and Surinam cherries are severely attacked as a rule. Revista Brasileira de Entomologia, 32 2: The Caribbean fruit fly, Anastrepha suspensa Loewhas also been called the Greater Antilliean fruit fly, the guava fruit fly and the Caribfly. Quarantine pests for Europe. Bases of dorsal and intermediate tubercles large, well-developed, with large sensilla; ventral sensilla smaller.
Various populations of each fruit fly species evidently exhibit variations in this and other characters that need to be taken into account. Genetic diversity was analyzed using F ST and analysis of molecular variance and revealed low genetic diversity between Florida and Caribbean samples and also between citrus and noncitrus samples. Anastrepha suspensa Loew Diptera: Anastrepha Trypetydae [sic], Diptera fruit flies in Puerto Rico.
Bait sprays have the advantage over cover sprays in that they can be applied as a spot treatment so that the flies are attracted to the insecticide and there is minimal impact on natural enemies or other insect fauna.
