Sperm allocation and cost of mating in a tropical tephritid fruit fly
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of both phenylacetaldehyde and 1,4-DMB for attractiveness in traps relative to fresh and aged torula yeast, a protein bait used for tephritid fruit fly
Adult tephritid fruit fly
females require protein sources for adequate egg production, and ammonia and its derivatives serve as volatile cues to locate protein-rich food.
In southern Brazil, Anastrepha fraterculus (Wiedemann) (Diptera: Tephritidae) is a tephritid fruit fly

In the case of tephritid fruit fly
SIT, the release of only males avoids the fruit damage caused by oviposition attempts by irradiated females (sterile stings), avoids matings between sterile males and sterile females and increases dispersal of sterile males searching for wild females (Rendon et al.
