Regulation and Quarantine Boundaries
Pest Hotline: 1-800-491-1899
The Guava Fruit Fly (Bactrocera correcta) is an exotic pest that is not established in the continental United States. Establishment of this fly would cause direct economic losses via damaged fruit, increased pesticide use statewide by commercial and residential growers in efforts to lessen this damage, loss of revenue due to export restrictions on fruit both domestically and internationally, and adverse impacts on native plants through the destruction of their fruit.
