Abstract

THE MEDITERRANEAN FRUIT FLY (Ceratitis capitata Wied) is one of the most serious horticultural pests in Western Australia.

For more than 50 years growers of stone fruit and pears have not been able to relax their activities against this pest.

Despite all their action however, there have been many occasions when fruit losses have been very severe.
