Trapping and the Detection, Control, and Regulation of Tephritid Fruit Flies

Lures, Area-Wide Programs, and Trade Implications

Editors: Shelly, T.E., Epsky, N., Jang, E.B., Reyes-Flores, J., Vargas, R.I. (Eds.)

  • Other books do not treat fruit fly trapping in a comprehensive manner; no other volume deals with topics ranging from the workings of baits and traps through invasion, dispersal and detection through international commerce
  • Other books often rely heavily on users of trapping technology and not the innovators of such technology; thisvolume assembles the world’s leaders in research in this field
  • Authors are encouraged to provide critical assessment oftechniques, ideas, etc. Thus, volume will present past and current trends but is NOT intended as a review volume. Thus, volume will (ideally) offer readers opportunity to learn how leaders in the field assess existing data and formulate new research avenues

About this book

The book focuses on four broad topics related to trapping of agriculturally important tephritid fruit flies, namely i) lures and traps, ii) invasion biology and detection of infestations, iii) attract and kill systems, and iv) trade regulations and risk assessment. This comprehensive structure progresses from the biological interaction between insect and lures/traps to the area-wide use of trapping systems to the utilization and impact of trapping data on international trade. The chapters include accounts of earlier research but are not simply compendia and instead evaluate past and current work as a tool for critical analysis and proposal of productive avenues for future work. At present there is no book available that deals with fruit fly trapping in such a broad context. Our book fills this gap and serves as a global reference for both those interested in fruit flies specifically as well as anyone dealing with the threat of invasive agricultural insects in general.
