Résumé
This study investigated the potential of Ceranock “attract and kill” system and the entomopathogenic fungus Metarizhium anisopliae to control Ceratitis capitata (Med-fly) infestation. Two control strategies were evaluated under field conditions in two citrus orchards located in the Souss Massa region of south-eastern Morocco. The first control strategy (S1) used 100 Ceranock female bait stations and 100 g of Ceranock male gel per hectare, while the second strategy (S2) used 50 Ceranock female bait stations, 50 g of Ceranock male gel and a ground application of M. anisopliae KN14. Results indicated that both strategies restricted fruit infestation to 0.7% and 0.72%, respectively. In addition, they proved to be successful in substantially reducing the Med-fly population to 44.9 % and 41.7%, respectively. On the other hand, a laboratory bioassay was used to assess the pathogenicity of M. anisopliae KN14 against different life stages of C. capitata, and mortality rates were 70.53%, 60.91% and 15.29% of the 3rd instar larvae, pupae and adults, respectively.
