Abstract: Mangoes in Hawaii had no available quarantine treatment to disinfest the fruit of tephritid fruit flies, thus preventing their export to many countries. Efforts to develop an approvable forced hot-air treatment for fruit fly eggs and larvae were described. Mango weevil remained a major problem, which a treatment effective for fruit flies was unlikely to affect.
