Marking blueberry maggot flies (Diptera: Tephritidae) with fluorescent diet for recapture studies
Florida Entomologist 92 (2), 379-381
Abstract: We present a novel technique to mark blueberry maggot flies, Rhagoletis mendax Curan, using fluorescent markers incorporated into the diet of the flies previous to the release. Our results indicate that the marking is reliable for at least 7 d and can be detected equally in live or dead flies.
