Adaptation of Anastrepha ludens (Loew) to an Enriched Recycled Diet
Several studies have been carried out at the Methods Development Department of the “Moscamed” program in Mexico to obtain an efficient and low cost medium for mass-rear the Mexican fruit fly, Anastrepha ludens (Loew). The main objective of this study was to mass-rear A. ludens, reusing a medfly starter diet.
