In Hawaii, the melon fly, Bactrocera cucurbitae, is one of four nonnative tephritid fruit fly
species that cause up to $15 million annually in direct losses to the state's fruit and vegetable crops, including squash, melon, cucumber, and tomato.
Heterorhabditis bacteriophora (Nematode: Heterorhabditidae) is currently used to control a variety of agricultural insect pests (Klein 1990; Georgis 1992), and previous studies have indicated that certain strains have the potential to infect tephritid fruit fly
larvae including Anastrepha ludens (Loew), A.
Approximately 2000 berries were collected during this study from different regions of Germany, examined for signs of piercing and then cut open to examine any infestation by the larvae of the tephritid fruit fly

Diachasmimorpha longicaudata (Ashmead) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) is a larval-prepupal endoparasitoid of tephritid fruit fly
pests in tropical and subtropical countries (van Nieuwenhove et al.

Mitochondrial DNA has also been used in analyze phylogenetic relationships among tephritid fruit fly
species (Smith et al.
