    How do you translate this terminology about cherries during harvest?

    thank you so much Ordira, it sounds obvious, but I was not sure of that.

    Atención con lo que "suena obvio". Nunca se puede usar una traducción literal sin antes comprobar que se trata del nombre utilizado en el campo de que se trate. En este caso, hay que ir al sitio de la FAO, por ejemplo, y comprobar el nombre de la plaga en español/castellano.

    Yes, the easiest thing for you to do is look up your pests in English in Wikipedia, find the scientific name and then find the common name in Spanish for whatever country you are in.
    Like this:
    1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhagoletis_indifferens
    The Western cherry fruit fly (Rhagoletis indifferens) is a pest that lives only on cherries. The adult form of this insect is slightly smaller than a housefly, ...
    (Check to see if Wikipedia has the same entry in Spanish. The list is on the left-hand side of the page.

    If not, Google:
    2. Results 1 - 10 of about 48 for cereza (Rhagoletis indifferens). (0.34 seconds)
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=cereza+(Rhagoletis+indifferens)+&aq=f&aqi=&oq=

    3. "Mosca occidental del cerezo. (Western cherry fruit fly) ..."
    "Rhagoletis indifferens (Mosca de las cerezas) ... "
    "Rhagoletis indifferens. Mosca de la cereza. ..."
    "la mosca de la cereza Rhagoletis indifferens ..."
    " Rhagoletis indifferens (Mosca de las cerezas) ..."

    Easy! Fun! Information at your fingertips! And most of all, no waiting! XD

    No "del cerezo", sino "de la cereza".

    WESTERN CHERRY FRUIT FLY = MOSCA OCCIDENTAL DE LA CEREZA (FAO [PLAGAS]: MOSCA DE LA CEREZA). LA FAMOSA MOSCA DE LA FRUTA LO ES DE LA FRUTA Y NO DE LOS FRUTALES.
