The Oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis, has been designated as a main quarantine insect pest. Sensitive monitoring and diagnosis against B. dorsalis are required for early quarantine treatment. This study formulated a wax type dispenser containing methyl eugenol and biopesticide to attract and kill this insect. It also developed diagnostic PCR primers against five major quarantine fruit flies of B. dorsalis, B. cucurbitae, B. tryoni, B. latifrons, and Ceratitis capitata. The lure and diagnostic primers were evaluated in a field located in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia.
