Comparison of ceralure and trimedlure attractants for the male Mediterranean fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae)



Comparison of ceralure and trimedlure attractants for the male Mediterranean fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae)



Journal of Entomological Science 31(2): 183-190



The Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata, is a major pest of fruits and vegetables in the world but, through an extensive trapping programme, the continental United States has remained free of established populations. These traps are baited with 2 g of trimedlure which is highly attractive to the male flies. This study contrasts the effectiveness of trimedlure and a new attractant, ceralure, which is an iodo-analogue of trimedlure.
