New advances in the improvement of the mass trapping technique of Ceratitis capitata W.

Description

Abstract: Since the achievement of a suitable attractant for Ceratitis capitata W. (Diptera: Tephritidae), many efforts have been performed in order to develop an environmentally friendly control method for this species, as well as respectful for the well-being of the growers and the final consumers. One of the most outstanding progresses carried out has been the incorporation of a contact insecticide, instead of dichlorvos, which use has been lately prohibited in agriculture. Trials conducted in different crops and various countries have shown a high effectiveness of deltamethrin in traps. A new device was tested to reduce both the cost of this technique and the time of application in the field.
