Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to determine the efficacy of different bait and attractant combinations in attracting Pumpkin fruit fly Zeugodacus (Zeugodacus) tau from April 2018 to march 2019. Flies were trapped in self-made bottle type traps by using five different combinations T1 (Cue-lure + Dichlorvos + Ethanol), T2 (Protein hydrolysate + Cue-lure + Dichlorvos + Ethanol), T3 (Jaggery + Cue-lure + Dichlorvos + Ethanol), T4 (Fruit pulp + Cue-lure + Dichlorvos + Ethanol) and T5 (Molasses + Cue-lure + Dichlorvos + Ethanol). The number of flies trapped was counted at weekly intervals. Maximum flies were annihilated during 20th standard week of 2018 in treatment with protein bait (79.50 flies/ trap/ week) and found it as superior. The rate of male annihilation in treatment with molasses as bait and without bait (Control) did not differed significantly. Mean numbers of flies/ trap annihilated in different treatments were: 400.25 (no bait), 733.25 (protein bait), 503.00 (jaggery as bait), 480.75 (fruit pulp as bait) and 406.25 (molasses as bait), respectively. Efficacy of these treatments in annihilation of male flies with respect to different baits was in the order: protein diet > jaggery ≥ fruit pulp > cue-lure (1ml) ≥ molasses.
