Abstract

The addition of the synthetic Rhagoletis lure (consisting of ammonium carbonate and ammonium acetate, developed previously for Rhagoletis cerasi L.) to fluorescent yellow sticky traps invariably increased catches of the European cherry fruit fly (R. cerasi), eastern cherry fruit fly (R. cingulata Loew.), walnut husk fly (R. completa Cresson) and the sunflower maggot (Strauzia longipennis Wiedemann). Thus in detection and monitoring surveys, where sensitivity of the trap is highly important, the use of traps with synthetic lure added is strongly recommended. Results of the present study with S. longipennis suggest that the synthetic Rhagoletis lure can be useful also in trapping non-Rhagoletis tephritid flies in future research efforts.
