Rhagoletis mendax Curran - (blueberry maggot)
The fly is an important native pest of blueberry in eastern North America. It also attacks other species of Ericaceae. Losses can be high because infested crops cannot be exported.
The eggs and larvae develop inside blueberries over a period of about 1 months. The mature larva drops to the ground, pupates in the soil and typically overwinters there. There is usually one generation per year, but some populations spend 2-3 winters as pupae.
