Ceratitis capitata (Diptera: Tephritidae), is a highly polyphagous species and and one of the major citrus pests andof fruit-growing crops. Fly damage results from both ovipositor in fruit, feeding by the larvae, and decomposition of plant tissue by invading secondary microorganisms (bacteria, fungi) that cause the fruit to rot. Their presence often requires host crops to undergo quarantine treatments, other disinfestations procedures or certification of flyfree areas. In this paper we are presenting the methodological approaches for assessing the distribution patterns in Albania. Following the climatic condition Albania is a country that create possibilities for growing up and development of a very kind of pest, including the Mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis capitata). The temperature and the humidity of environment is very suitable for the development of this kind of pest. Its impact on agriculture is very high, and for this reason it is crucial to evaluate its distribution in Albania. The monitoring of Ceratitis capitata population on different host plant: plum, apricot, peach, fig, kaki, mandarin, citrus and orange fruits during the year 2015-2016.
