Transmission of Mucor rot of guava fruits by three species of fruit flies
Mucor rot was transmitted from diseased to healthy guava fruits by three species of fruit flies commonly occurring in Hawaii. Mature flies were more efficient in transmitting this disease than immature flies. Sanitation greatly reduced the percentage of fruits infected with Mucor rot in six of eight cultivars tested.
