Abstract:The Apple Maggot (Rhagoletis pomonclla Walsh) has once more been causing severe losses in Michigan after a dom1ancy of about a quarter of a century. The adults appear in .July and are at large until near the end of August. The larvae leave the fruit soon after it falls to the ,ground and enter the ground to pupate. About one-third of these emerge in September forming a second brood of flies that oviposit in late winter apples. Others may possibly lie over in the soil two years before emerging.
