New fruit flies bait solutions

Revista Brasileira de Entomologia 30(2): 251-256
New fruit flies bait solutions
Twelve different formulations of a waste fermentation product "Ajifer" were tested in laboratory and field conditions and some of them showed to be a very good attractant to Ceratitis capitata rating better than molasses, which is the traditional bait. The results obtained in laboratory were confirmed in the field [peach orchard] demonstrating the efficiency of the olfactometer tested. The attraction was equal for both sexes in the laboratory. In the field more females were captured. In the orchard, adults of Anastrepha spp. and Silba spp. were also captured and showed also to be more attracted by "Ajifer" solutions than molasses. As an overall conclusion "Ajifer" is shown to be an inexpensive, convenient and suitable substitute for molasses as a bait for fruit flies in commercial orchards.
