Depth of pupation and survival of the Oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Diptera: Tephritidae), pupae at selected soil moistures



Depth of pupation and survival of the Oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Diptera: Tephritidae), pupae at selected soil moistures



Applied Entomology and Zoology 41(3): 515-520



Estimates of pupation depth and survival of the Oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel), are important for optimizing soil control and for better understanding its natural mortality in the agricultural system of Guangzhou, China. Late third-instar larvae were placed in soils having relative moistures of 0-100% for pupation. No pupae were found on the surface at soil moistures of 0-70%. Instead, more than 50% of the larvae pupated on the surface at soil moistures of 80, 90, and 100%.
