Pilot Eradication Project for the Carambola Fruit Fly in Coronie, Suriname
The Carambola fruit fly, a Dacus dorsalis complex species which was detected in 1986, has spread during recent years throughout a major part of the coastal area of Suriname and French Guyana. Since its detection a distribution and host plant survey were executed (Van Sauers-Muller, unpublished). This was first done on a limited scale, because of lack of transport; however after August 1989, the scale of activities was widened, because two pick-ups (made available by the Brasilian government) were assigned to the project.
