Ceralure, a new potent and persistent attractant for the Mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann), was evaluated in a new technique which serves as an alternative to aerial application of male annihilation bait-sprays for eradication. Residual ceralure and trimedlure contents, release rates, and medfly captures using panels coated with ceralure and trimedlure in stickem were evaluated for effective attraction of male medflies. The lure/stickem coated panels may be more effective than the Jackson trap baited with the “standard” trimedlure plug dispenser.
