Effective Management of Fruit Flies in Gourds

Gourds have small holes where maggots entered.


Brown goo oozes out of holes, showing decay.

Gourds look weird, fall early, and rot due to bacteria.

Collection and Destruction: Remove fallen and infested fruits regularly to break the fruit fly life cycle and decrease their numbers.

Cultural Practices

Soil Raking: Expose fruit fly pupae by raking soil, aiding natural predators and reducing the population.

Border Crop Strategy: Plant maize around to attract flies, spray it with insecticides for control, minimizing chemical use.

Trapping and Monitoring: Employ traps with citronella oil, eucalyptus oil, vinegar, and lactic acid, alongside fruit fly pheromone traps, for monitoring and control.
