Susceptibility and Interactions of Drosophila suzukii and Zaprionus indianus (Diptera: Drosophilidae) in Damaging Strawberry

Abstract: Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura) has been recently detected causing damage to strawberries in Brazil. Infestation in strawberry culture has often been observed jointly with the presence of Zaprionus indianus Gupta. This study investigated the susceptibility of strawberries at three ripening stages to infestation of D. suzukii and Z. indianus and their interaction. In the laboratory, strawberries cv. Albion at different ripening stages (green, semi-ripe and ripe) were exposed to D. suzukii and Z. indianus for 24 … Show more

“…We concluded that D. suzukii has access to strawberries at the onset of their maturation but strongly prefers blushing and ripe fruit stages. These results are consistent with previous observations that used different strawberry cultivars and other species of berry [10, 13, 14]. Together, they establish that D. suzukii , compared to other closely related species, has shifted its oviposition target from rotten to earlier stages of fruit maturation.…”

“…Application of the lime sulfur preparation represents a good example of an alternative product capable of controlling multiple insect pests in the organic production of strawberries. In strawberry production systems worldwide, phytophagous mites (particularly the two‐spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch) and more recently, D. suzukii are considered the most prevalent pests,, and both pest systems can be adequately controlled by lime sulfur preparations. For example, the lime sulfur LC 80 for D. suzukii is in the concentration range known to provide adequate control of T. urticae…”

“…In the global production of strawberries, as observed for fields of other soft‐skinned fruits, recent invasions of the spotted‐wing drosophila , Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura) (Diptera: Drosophilidae), have elevated these flies to one of the most prevalent strawberry pests . However, despite recent efforts aimed at developing other management strategies, e.g., potential parasitoids, mass trapping and physical exclusion (netting), the application of synthetic insecticides remains the most used tool for the management of D. suzukii , , .…”

“…In natural conditions, the niche that D. suzukii occupies means that they do not normally need to compete with other Drosophila species for egg‐laying resources until ripening fruits become scarce. However, in assays performed by Bernardi et al ., when given a choice of varying fruit ripeness, and with no competition, significantly more D. suzukii eggs were laid on, and adults emerged from, ripe and overripe fruit compared with ripening fruit; a trend also found by Lee et al . in comprehensive investigations .…”
