Abstract

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.
