A push-pull strategy for the management of the Oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) in mango
Studies were conducted to refine the existing management strategies of fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) in mango by including a foliar application of a neem based pesticide on fruits that acts as a repellent. It was evident that azadirachtin applied on trees during fruiting stage coupled with methyl eugenol traps created a push-pull environment to female and male fruit flies respectively, thus significantly bringing down the fruit fly infestation.
