The adult fly lays egg on fruits.

The eggs hatch and the larvae feed inside the fruits.

Yelowing can be seen on affected fruits followed by rotting.

The damage is severe in summer months.


In homestead gardens the fruits may be covered with polythene, cloth or paper bags to ensure mechanical protection.

Remove and destroy affected and decayed fruits.

It can also be effectively controlled by the use of banana fruit traps coupled with the removal and destruction of infected fruits.

traps are to be sets at a distance of 2 m after a border row and they may be replenished after 7-9 days.Start bait trapping just before flowering.
