Current control methods for the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata, and their application in the USA



Current control methods for the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata, and their application in the USA



Review of Agricultural Entomology 78(9): 923-930



In this review, the authors begin by outlining the potential for damage by Ceratitis capitata to a wide range of tropical and subtropical fruits and vegetables, and the extensive quarantine and commodity treatment measures that are often required. Control measures are then discussed, with particular reference to the USA including Hawaii. Biological control includes intra- or interspecific competition, parasitoids, predators, pathogens or entomophilic nematodes.
