Abstract Preadult development and survival rates for a wild strain of melon fly in Hawaii were examined when reared on six common hosts at 25 °C. The eggs are deposited in cavities created by the female using its sharp ovipositor. During the severe winter months, they hide and huddle together under dried leaves of bushes and trees. Ent.
