Location: Fruit and Vegetable Insect Research

Project Number: 5352-22430-001-37
Project Type: Interagency Reimbursable Agreement

Start Date: Jun 01, 2013
End Date: Sep 30, 2013

Objective:
To determine the use of apples and hawthorns by apple maggot fly populations in Washington state and to determine if major tropical fruit crops grown in Asian markets can be hosts of apple maggot flies.

Approach:
Provide data on: 1. use of different varieties of apples as hosts by hawthorn- and apple-infesting apple maggot flies in Washington state 2. use by apple- and hawthorn-infesting apple maggot flies of apples that are off trees, such as in storage bins or on the ground 3. non-use of various tropical fruits by hawthorn- and apple-infesting apple maggot flies in Washington state
