Abstract:A flexible detector that transmits feeding sounds of larvae of the Caribbean fruit fly, Anastrepha suspensa (Loew), is described. The detector was tested on mango, Mangifera indica L., cultivar 'Francis,' which is elongated in shape and compressed laterally. Flexibility eliminates the need for different detectors for each mango size. The detector can be constructed to fit spherical mangos of different sizes or other commodities such as citrus, pome fruits, and stone fruits.
