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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
