The first three sections of the book explore aspects of the biology, ecology, physiology, behavior, taxonomy, and morphology of fruit flies. The next two sections provide evidence on the efficacy of attractants, risk assessment, quarantine, and post-harvest control methods. Fruit flies are especially attracted to ripened fruits and vegetables in the kitchen. But they also will breed in drains, garbage disposals, empty bottles and cans, trash containers, mops and cleaning rags. All that is needed for development is a moist film of fermenting material.

The third phase was funded by AusAID, UNDP and the New Zealand Government (USD 1,,), and was known as the Project on Regional Management of Fruit Flies in the Pacific. It started in May and included all 22 Pacific Island countries and territories (PICTs). Fruit flies (Diptera: Tephritidae) are among the most economically important pest species in the world, attacking a wide range of fruits and fleshy vegetables throughout tropical and sub-tropical areas. These species are such devastating crop pests that major control and eradication programs have been developed in various parts of the world to combat them.

Original publication by Good Fruit Grower, Yakima, WA. Orchard Pest Management provides a practical reference on tree fruit IPM. Insect hosts, life stages, life histories, damage, monitoring, biological control, and management are described for most major and minor pests in orchards as well as major natural enemies.

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 (Diptera: Tephritidae: Dacini).

The Dacini is a hugely diverse clade of nearly species endemic to the. The final section of the book covers the management of these flies, with chapters on pre-harvest, post-harvest and regulatory controls.

This book is the edited, camera-ready proceedings of a recent international symposium on fruit flies of economic importance. It covers current knowledge of fruit. The first three sections of the book explore aspects of the biology, ecology, physiology, behavior, taxonomy, and morphology of fruit flies.

The next two sections provide evidence on the efficacy of attractants, risk assessment, quarantine, and post-harvest control methods. Cherry fruit flies have no sexual attractant pheromones. The only pheromone the female cherry fruit fly produces is a repellant, most likely used to indicate to others that an egg has been deposited into a specific fruit.
