Attraction and Longevity of 2- and 3-Component Food Cone Lures for the Caribbean Fruit Fly, Anastrepha suspensa (Diptera: Tephritidae).

Citrus spp's tropical fruit fly, Anastrepha suspensa, is a quarantine rodent that bites Anastrepha suspensa. As part of an ongoing effort to find useful synthetic lures for the Caribbean fruit fly, we undertook field tests in Homestead, Florida, comparing the effectiveness and longevity of commercial 2- and 3-component cone lures, the new regulatory products used by regulatory departments, to a positive control against the traditional liquid protein bait consisting of hydrolyzed torula yeast and borax as a positive control. Traps baited with the torula yeast-borax mixture attracted the most mean number of A. suspensa, with the highest mean number of A. suspensa, and traps baited with the commercial 2C lures captured more flies than the 3C lures. These findings show that the 2C cone lure is more useful to A. suspensa than the 3C cone lure under field conditions in south Florida, and that the 2C cone lures are more popular for up to 8 wk.
