Subject: Fruit fly eggs in cooked breadfruit
Publicada: April 01, 2002
Source: APHIS PPQ Port Operations
New Zealand Agriculture officials have alerted PPQ port operations that viable eggs of the Pacific fruit fly, Bactrocera xanthodes, have been found in cooked breadfruit (Artocarpus altilis) from Pacific Island countries in passenger baggage. This fly is a moderately important pest in its native range, and presents a potential risk to countries with a suitable tropical climate. It affects the fruiting stage of its primary host, breadfruit, as well as its secondary hosts, including guava (Psidium guajava), mandarin (Citrus reticulata), and tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum).
