UPDATE ON THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE BLUEBERRY MAGGOT, RHAGOLETIS MENDAX (DIPTERA: TEPHRITIDAE), IN CANADA

C. Vincent, M.J. Lareau
The blueberry maggot, Rhagoletis mendax Curran is an important pest of blueberries in North America. In Canada, it is present in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Several surveys conducted in Quebec (by trapping with AM® traps or cooking the fruits for larvae) confirmed the absence of the species in spite of the presence of its host plants. From a marketing point of view, this situation could be advantageous for exports. This paper deals with the bioecology of the blueberry maggot, its identification and distribution.
