Traps were used to obtain an indication of the progress of eradication. World Crop Pests, 3 B. Their Identification and Bionomics. These tiny wasps attack fruit flies by laying eggs in the fly larvae. Guava subsequently proved to be the preferred host of A. Biological Control Possibilities for the biological control of A. Distribution Top of page A. There are several methods available for certification under bait-spray provisions: Gamma irradiation as a quarantine treatment for carambolas infested with Caribbean fruit flies.

Bait sprays have the advantage over cover sprays in that they can be applied as a spot treatment so that the flies are attracted to the insecticide and there is minimal impact on natural enemies or other insect fauna.
