Spearhead of the fruit diversification of Côte d’Ivoire, mango now holds an important place for the economic development of the North region. Despite this economic importance, mango production in Côte d’Ivoire is limited by the damage of fruit flies Diphtera: tephritidae. Considering the fact that no single control method guarantees sustainable results against fruit flies, it is essential to promote a set of effective and economically viable control methods for transfer to the producers. The objective of this study is to identify effective integrated pest management combinations that producers can adopt. The work consisted in evaluating the effectiveness of IPM combinations. Four combinations of pest management were installed in the different sites of agroecological zones. The results showed that the combination of “Trap + sanitation + GF120” recorded the highest percentage of orchard protection (95%). Then comes the combination “Sanitation + GF120” (92%) followed by “Trapping + Sanitation” (90%) and “Trapping + GF120” (88%). All different combinations have shown their effectiveness in the control of fruit flies.
