Laboratory and field infestation studies on monstera to determine its host status in relation to the Caribbean fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae)



Laboratory and field infestation studies on monstera to determine its host status in relation to the Caribbean fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae)



Florida Entomologist 84(3): 437-438



Based on the protocol of Cowley et al. and the tests conducted in the field in Dade County, Florida, USA, it is concluded that Monstera deliciosa is not a host to the Caribbean fruit fly and presents no risk of transporting Anastrepha suspensa to other states from Florida.
