The B. dorsalis specimens were detected from Methyl Eugenol (ME) baited traps in the Addo area of the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa which is approximately 40km North from Port Elizabeth. The identifications of the specimens were confirmed through molecular analysis. Phytosanitary actions were implemented to control the movement of fruit from the area under delimitation and eradication. Eradication includes the application of protein bait sprays, deployment of male annihilation (MAT) blocks and strict field sanitation within the quarantine area. Eradication actions will be deployed for a minimum period of eight weeks or over two life cycles of the OFF if it is longer than 8 weeks. After implementation of eradication actions, a monitoring period of four weeks or one life cycle will be conducted. If there are no further detections during the monitoring period, the quarantine areas can be declared as free from the presence of Bactrocera dorsalis.
