On the feasibility of population monitoring of melon fly dacus cucurbitae coquillett with cue lure i. effect of adult's age and temperature on the rate of attracted flies



On the feasibility of population monitoring of melon fly dacus cucurbitae coquillett with cue lure i. effect of adult's age and temperature on the rate of attracted flies



Plant Protection Bulletin (Taichung) 29(4): 353-360



Daily response of male melon flies to cue-lure was studied in the laboratory with the flies collected from the same cohort. The result revealed that both temperature and adult's age would influence their response to cue-lure. The influence of temperature (R2=0.6274) on the attractiveness of cue-lure was approximately three times of that of adult's age (R2=0.2152), and the effective range of temperature was around 22-31.degree.C. Influence of adult's age on the response to poisoned cue-lure (cue-lure : sumithion=19.1 v/v) was estimated in an outdoor screen cage (3.60.times.08.times.2.05 m) under natural temperature around 30.+-.5.degree.C with 1, 5, 9, 13, 17, 21, 25, 29, 33-day-old adults, respectively. Twenty-two percent of adults had shown response to cue-lure soon after emergence and the number of trapped adults increased with age. The rates of trapped adults were initially around 20-30%, but increased to about 50% when the flies were older than 21 days. Although some flies escaped and died out of the trap after contacting poisoned cue-lure, the percentage of total attracted flies (YT) could be estimated by the percentage of flies dead in the trap (YI) as the following formula: YT=0.6344.+-.1.6166 YI (r=0.9398).
