Antecedentes: Anastrepha grandis es una plaga restrictiva al comercio internacional de frutas de la familia Cucurbitácea. Adultos de esta especie fueron detectados en Panamá en 2009, específicamente en la provincia de Darién, a través del Sistema de Vigilancia Fitosanitaria (SVF) del Ministerio de Desarrollo Agropecuario (MIDA). Fue necesario aplicar medidas fitosanitarias para la contención de la plaga, a fin de cumplir con las exigencias del mercado internacional. En 2012 y después d...

Identification of Ceratitis capitata electrophysiological and field responses to Cera Trap®

April 2016
Posters | Cera-Trap®

Fruit flies such as Ceratitis capitata and Bactrocera invadens are notorious worldwide for their destructive impact on agriculture and particularly difficult to control effectively. Pesticide treatment have historically been used against theses pests, but nowadays it is necessary to develop alternative strategies due to an increase in insecticide resistance, but also to toxicological and environmental consequences. Mass trapping techniques are currently one of the most common control methods...

CERA TRAP as alternative to standard fruit fly control in fruit crops of South Africa

Posters | Cera-Trap®

Three endemic tephritid fruit fly species, Mediterranean fruit fly (Medfly) (Cerratitis capitata), Natal fly (Ceratitis rosa), Marula fly (Ceratitis cosyra) and a fourth species of Asian origin, the Oriental fruit fly (Bactrocera dorsalis), are considered pests of significant economic and quarantine importance in South Africa (Manrakhan et al. 2011). Fruit flies are notoriously difficult to control due to their polyphagous nature and high number of generations per year (Llorens et al. 2008)....

Response of the sapote fruit fly, Anastrepha serpentina (Diptera: Tephritidae), to commercial lures and trap designs in sapodilla orchards

December 2015
Scientific articles | Cera-Trap®

Anastrepha serpentina (Wiedemann) (Diptera: Tephritidae) is one of the least studied of the pestiferous Neotropical tephritid flies despite its propensity to attack several commercial fruit crops, mainly in the Sapotaceae (Ericales). Few studies have been performed to improve monitoring traps and lures specifically targeted at this species. Management currently is achieved by using the hydrolyzed protein lure (Captor®;with borax) and a Multilure®;trap in combination with chemical control m...

Comparison of Hydrolyzed Protein Baits and Various Grape Juice Products as Attractants for Anastrepha Fruit Flies (Diptera: Tephritidae)

September 2015
Scientific articles | Cera-Trap®

Mexican fruit flies, Anastrepha ludens (Loew; Diptera: Tephritidae), have traditionally been trapped in citrus orchards in Mexico using protein hydrolysates as bait. Recently, CeraTrap®, an enzymatic hydrolyzed protein, has emerged as an effective lure for monitoring A. ludens at the orchard level and is currently being used by growers in the region of Veracruz. Several studies have revealed that grape juice is highly attractive to A. ludens, and recent work supports its potential use for r...
