Biophenols were determined by HPLC, sterols, triterpenic dialcohols, and fatty acids by gas chromatography analysis. It is largely non-responsive to the male lures cuelure and methyl eugenol. Species of fruit flies from different agro-climatic zones of Karnataka revealed the presence of four species of fruit flies that are attracted to methyl eugenol viz., Bactrocera dorsalis, B. The diffuser is a polyethylene tube that is individually packaged in an aluminium sachet with label specifications. of Bactrocera dorsalis in an area having an existing trapping network for exotic fruit flies. However, studies on the influence of commensal bacteria in insect mate-selection are scarce. The application of insecticides to manage this pest has led to serious resistance problems; therefore, new ways to control B. dorsalis are required. The acquired data were statistically analyzed. Более 500 видов. However, lack of genetic information on this organism is an obstacle to understanding the mechanisms behind its development and its ability to resist insecticides. Genetic variations among and within populations of the Oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Diptera; Tephritidae), detected by PCR-RFLP of the mitochondrial control region. However, the genus Bactrocera forms a very large group in Asia , Australia and the Pacific with about 500 described species in … Background The oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel), is one of the most economically important pests in the world, causing serious damage to fruit production.
