- Bactrocera dorsalis is a species of tephritid fruit fly that is endemic to Southeast Asia, but has also been introduced to Hawaii, the Mariana Islands and Tahiti. It is one of the major pest species in the genus Bactrocera with a broad host range of cultivated and wild fruits.
- The oriental fruit fly Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) (Diptera: Tephritidae) is a significant pest species that damages a wide range of fruit and other horticultural products, causing major financial losses to horticulture. Trichlorphon [dimethyl (2, 2, 2-trichloro-1-hydroxyethyl) phosphate] is a moderately toxic organophosphate insecticide that has been widely used to control this pest because of its low toxicity to humans and its high efficacy; however, resistance to this pesticide in B. dorsalis has been increasing, thus threatening the effective management of the oriental fruit fly. .
