Abstract: AbstractWe aimed to estimate population densities of Anastrepha obliqua (McQuart) (Diptera: Tephritidae) from trap data by releasing known numbers of sterile adults into mango orchards, and to determine sterility induction through the use of different sterile-to-wild ratios in field cages. Population densities were monitored with Multilure traps baited with hydrolysed protein (Captor 300) or BioLure during dry and rainy seasons. There was a positive relationship between the release density of sterile flies an…
