Studies on the possible attack of the Mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis capitata Wiedmann) on the green bananas


, : Studies on the possible attack of the Mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis capitata Wiedmann) on the green bananas. Research Bulletin of the Plant Protection Service, Japan (9): 6-18

Females of Ceratitis capitata (Wied.) were found in Japan to oviposit equally and freely both on green-harvested and unharvested banana fruits. The numbers of eggs laid/puncture in green bananas was half that in ripe fruit. No larvae survived in green fruit left unpicked for ten days after oviposition.
