Control strategies designed to reduce the chance of resistance with special reference to tephritid fruit flies


, : Control strategies designed to reduce the chance of resistance with special reference to tephritid fruit flies. Pest control: operations and systems analysis in fruit fly management: 399-436

Laboratory selection experiments on the fruit pest Ceratitis capitata have produced resistance to several insecticides, yet resistance has never become a practical problem in this or other tephritids. This state of affairs is analysed. Considerable benefit probably arises from natural movements of flies between treated and untreated trees or areas. The integration of insecticide usage with other methods of control is also considered to be beneficial.
