Attractive efficacy of three attractants for the oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) (Diptera: Tephritidae)



Attractive efficacy of three attractants for the oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) (Diptera: Tephritidae)



Plant Protection Bulletin (Taichung) 38(1): 59-65



The attractive efficacy of three types of fly traps baited with methyl eugenol, molasses, and ethyl benzoate were compared during the period of May 2 to 18, 1995 at the butterfly park of Taipei Municipal Zoo. Results showed that no fly was caught by molasses trap. No female fly was attracted by the methyl eugenol trap, but a total of 300 males were trapped. Although the ethyl benzoate trap caught some oriental fruit flies, the majority of the flies caught were males. The ethyl bmzoate trap also attracted another Tephritid fly Acrotaeniostola sexvittata which is known as an insect pest of bamboo sprouts. The results show that the attracting efficacy of methyl eugenol is still markedly superior to the other two attractants. The specific attractiveness of ethyl benzoate to the female oriental fruit fly needs to be evaluated again to determine whether the females were actually lured by ethyl benzoate or were trapped due to some other reasons.
