The work suggested in the present study aimed to evaluate a low cost nutritious larval medium in view of the high biological aspects of the produced C.capitata adults e.g. % pupation, pupal weight, % adult recovery, egg fecundity and fertility and high reproductive rates with short generation times for medflies reared under controlled conditions.
