Feasibility of using male annihilation techniques for suppression of Bactrocera dorsalis and Ceratitis spp. in mango orchards in northern Benin

This report summarizes the findings from male annihilation experiments in northern Benin using methyl eugenol - for suppression of Bactrocera dorsalis - and terpinyl acetate for suppression of Ceratitis spp. Methyl eugenol MATs maintained B. dorsalis male populations at less than 10% of its populations in the control orchards. Terpinyl acetate was also effective in suppressing Ceratitis spp. male populations, but was much less effective than methyl eugenol in the suppression of B. dorsalis.
