Effects of oviposition on remating response to pheromones and longevity in the female caribbean fruit fly anastrepha suspensa diptera tephritidae



Effects of oviposition on remating response to pheromones and longevity in the female caribbean fruit fly anastrepha suspensa diptera tephritidae



Annals of the Entomological Society of America 81(6): 1021-1024



Female Caribbean fruit flies with oviposition opportunities remate frequently, two-thirds of them after 1 wk and approximately one-third every subsequent week. Those with limited chances to oviposit remate less frequently, and about half of them mate only once during their lifetime. Ovipositing females regain receptivity to male-produced pheromones within a week, unlike nonlaying females. Mortality rates also are higher for egg-laying females.
