Traps with linalool, 2,3-dimethylpyrazine, 2,5-dimthylpyrazine or geranylacetate were all significantly more attractive to released sterile flies than unbaited traps. Sex ratios of catches varied greatly; most females were caught in periods of peak ripe fruit production in both coffee and mango. Delta traps caught more flies than Jackson traps. No component or mixture caught more flies than trimedlure. Ammonia with ethyl pyrazine caught significantly more flies than either component separately
