Topic: larvae in my cherries (9 msgs / 184 lines)
1) From: kevin creason
I brought back a baggie of kona typica cherries from the owner of Lava
Java in Maui. Great guy, didn't mind my questions at all. I gave him a
lot of business that week, so that may have greased the wheels. I'm
going to plant these cherries and try to get a couple of shrubs going
for fun.
Anyway, the ziploc baggie of coffee cherries has some little larvae
crawling around in there... Not sure if they are fruit flies or coffee
borers. I'm going to google this and see what I get. I hope this isn't
the borer. I tossed the baggie in the fridge to slow it down and give
me time to figure this out.
any suggestions?

I'm sure we'll hear from our experts, but failing that.. could you send me a
picture, I'll check with the Ag. Dept.  I'm pretty sure that those cherries
should not have left the state so try not answering the door for a few
days.. :-)  Terry/Kona

Definitely do not answer the door if there is a 300 pound Samoan knocking

Fly larvae. Not a big deal, but also not something you should be 
transporting around either!

I meant the fly larvae arent a big deal to your health and such, but 
yes, it is not good to be transporting insect larvae from place to 
place, especially now the Kona crop is threatened by Broca.

Sorry, Tom - I came across a bit harsh.  Didn't mean to.

Thanks! That's what I was leaning towards. I popped the little white
hypothetical dudes, so no picture possible. What's left and what's in
my mind's eye definitely looks more fruit fly-ish.
So, in this hypothetical situation, get some nematodes and mix into
the planting?

Was that fruit fly-is or fruit fly-ash?
