Research Reports: Analysis of Caribbean Fruit Fly (Diptera: Tephritidae) Trapping Data, Dade Country, Florida, 1987-1991
AbstractRecords of Caribbean fruit flies, Anastrepha suspensa (Loew), captured in McPhail traps were analyzed from 48 trapping locations in Dade County (Port of Miami and Homestead) from 1987-1991. Greatest numbers were trapped over all locations in May, June, and July 1987 and 1989-1991, and in November 1988. Thirteen species of Caribbean fruit fly host trees were represented among the 48 trap locations. Numbers of flies trapped weekly in all traps or just those in conspecific host trees were not linearly correlated with weekly mean temperatures or weekly precipitation. Weekly trap catches were not correlated among conspecific host tree sites or between the Port of Miami and Homestead areas.
