dc.description.abstract The Oriental fruit fly, Dacus dorsalis Hendel, was first found in Hawaii in 1945 (van Zwaluwenburg, 1947). During the following year it increased to epidemic populations and caused serious damage to many crops throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Prompt action was taken to combat this pest through the introduction of biological control agents. The purpose of this paper is to present the biology, ecology, and status of D. dorsalis and its principal parasites and to evaluate the role of enromophagous insects that prey upon it. en_US
