Abstract

The Mediterranean fruit-fly (Ceratitis capitata, Wied.) first reached Bermuda about 1865, and since that time has been a pest of the first importance on all kinds of thin-skinned fruits. Peaches, which formerly grew in great abundance in the island, were rendered unproductive, and loquats, sapodillas, Surinam cherries, peppers, and to a lesser extent citrus, papaws, sugar-apples and guavas, were severely infested.
