Relationship between preentry sample size for quarantine security and variability of estimates of fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae) disinfestation treatment efficacy



Relationship between preentry sample size for quarantine security and variability of estimates of fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae) disinfestation treatment efficacy



Journal of Economic Entomology 85(5): 1560-1565



A probability model was developed to quantify the quarantine risk from importing fruit fly hosts. Bayesian theory is used to show how sample size at point of entry is related to the number of test insects used to determine efficacy of the postharveat disinfestation trestment. The model assumes that other variables such as lot size, average number of insects in an infested fruit, and maximum pest limit (or tolerance) are fixed and known.
