Monitoring cucurbit fruit fly using cue lure trap, banana pulp bait and jaggery based poison bait were carried out at district, Deoria, Uttar Pradesh for two consecutive years, 2014-15 and 2015-16. Among the attractants cue lure attracted maximum number of Bactrocera cucurbitae followed by banana pulp bait. While comparing different months of the year highest number of trapping was recorded in July and August (20.03 and 20.68 adults/ trap) followed by September and October (15.59 and 12.21 adults / trap). Pooled incidence data on trap catches showed significant positive correlation with maximum & minimum temperature and rainfall in all the lures, but non-significant positive with average relative humidity.
Key words: Cucurbits, Melon fruit fly, Monitoring, Attractants.
