Melon Fruit Fly infestation start after flowering stage of crop.  Female flies sting on fruit bark and lays whitish eggs. After few days maggots hatches from this eggs. This maggots starts to feed on pulp of fruit.  Feeding of maggots on fruit pulp spoils fruit quality then it starts to bad smell. Because of sting of fruit fly and maggots feeding fruits get damaged. Many times fungal spores also enter from area of egg laid.

Life Cycle:
The development period from egg to adult ranges from 12 to 28 days. The female may lay as many as 1,000 eggs. Eggs are generally laid in young fruit but are also laid in the succulent stems of host plants. The eggs are deposited in cavities created by the female using its sharp ovipositor. After eggs hatch into small, white larvae, they eat from their nesting site for four days, absorbing the nutrients and energy needed to transform into adults. Larvae then locate dark, dry places for pupation. During this stage, the legless larvae grow six legs and a pair of wings before emerging as adults. Full pupation takes approximately four days. During this time, the faint outline of the transforming fly is visible through the pupa case. Following pupation, adult fruit flies are ready to mate in about two days. There may be as many as 8 to 10 generations a year.
