Host specific demographic studies of the melon fruit fly, Dacus cucurbitae Coquillett


Host specific demographic studies of the melon fruit fly, Dacus cucurbitae Coquillett



Journal of Insect Science 8(1): 87-89



ISSN/ISBN: 1536-2442

The melon fruit fly, Dacus cucurbitae Coquillett when reared on three cucurbit hosts, namely bitter gourd, cucumber and sponge gourd showed slight variations in duration of egg (1.1 -1.8 days) and pupal (7.7-9.4 days) stages but it varied notably in larval stage, i.e., 6 days on sponge gourd and 3 days on other two hosts. Highest mortality occurred during the egg stage, the maximum being 20 per cent on sponge gourd. The fly with a shortest mean generation time (T = 25.8 days) and highest net reproductive rate (Ro = 55.8) possessed the highest intrinsic rate of increase (0.16) on cucumber.
