Abstract

Export of Mexican fresh fruit and vegetables is many times subject to quarantine restrictions because of the presence of several insect pests. Fruit flies like A. ludens, A. setpentina, and A. obliqua are spread in different regions and are pests of the main commercial fruits: mangoes, plums, citrus, etc. The Mediterranean fruit fly C. capitata is established in Guatemala, and appears sporadically in the border region between Mexico and Guatemala (Gutierrez-Samperio, 1989).
