Biology and management of Bactrocera and related fruit flies

Anthony R. Clarke

Throughout Asia, Australia and the Pacific, and increasingly in Africa, the primary horticultural insect pests are fruit flies belonging to the genera Bactrocera, Zeugodacus and Dacus. All these species lay their eggs into fleshy fruits and vegetables, where the maggots feed, therefore destroying the fruit. This broad text provides a rapid introduction to this economically and ecologically important group, which includes species such as the Oriental fruit fly, Melon fly, Queensland fruit fly and the Olive fly.
