Attraction of female Caribbean fruit flies, Anastrepha suspensa (Diptera: Tephritidae), to the presence of males and male-produced stimuli in field cages



Attraction of female Caribbean fruit flies, Anastrepha suspensa (Diptera: Tephritidae), to the presence of males and male-produced stimuli in field cages



Annals of the Entomological Society of America, 766: 996-998



Males of Anastrepha suspensa (Lw.) produce airborne sex pheromones and calling sounds. The response was tested of sexually mature virgin females released onto field-caged guava trees to caged sexually mature males, tape-recorded calling sound, sex pheromone extract, sound + extract and empty control trap. Males attracted 4.2-fold as many females as the control, and sound attracted 2.4-fold as many; extract attracted 2.5-fold as many, and sound + extract attracted 1.9-fold as many.
