If buying mangoes in the Jamaica or the Caribbean, you should do an overall inspection of each mango for worm spots (maggots) before buying

The West Indian Fruit Fly (Anastrepha obliqua) and the Caribbean Fruit Fly (Anastrepha suspensa).

The West Indian fruit fly larvae are those worms that you find in mangoes, guavas and plums. The pest has severely limited our mango export trade. The pest has numerous hosts and is to be found in hog plums, guavas, otaheti apples,soursop, just to name a few. In 1968 the pest affected mainly common mangoes, Bombay, hog plums, guavas and was of little importance to some of the other mango varieties. It was definitely not a pest of the Julie and East Indian mangoes. Today the population has exploded with every possible host being infested. Read more about our enemy the fly
