Temperature-dependent development and survival rates of Culex quinquefasciatus and Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae).
TLDR
In both species, body size generally decreased as temperature increased, and survival from eclosion to adult emergence was highest in the range from 20 to 30 degrees C and dropped drastically at 15 (38%) and 34 degrees C. Expand
Ecology and management of arthropod pests of poultry.
TLDR
Future poultry pest management programs must be based on sound data, which presently is too limited, and must be flexible enough to adjust rapidly to evolving pest problems in rapidly changing production systems. Expand
Poultry Integrated Pest Management: Status and Future
TLDR
The structure of the sophisticated, highly integrated poultry industry provides a situation conducive to refinement and wider implementation of IPM, based on pest identification, pest population monitoring, and methods of cultural, biological, and chemical control. Expand
A Survey of Salmonella Contamination in Modern Broiler Production.
TLDR
Results suggestSalmonella contamination in the U.S. broiler production and processing system has changed little since 1969 and underline the contention that effective Salmonella control efforts must be comprehensive. Expand

TLDR
A fly-activity index based on fecal spotting of white paper cards provided useful comparisons of farms, and development of that simple sampling tool is recommended. Expand
Phoresy redefined and examined in Macrocheles muscaedomesticae (Acarina:Macrochelidae)
TLDR
It was concluded that phoretic attachment occurs when the attractiveness of the manure exceeds that of the flies, in general agreement with the only other extensive investigation ofphoretic behaviour in mites. Expand
Fly control in confined livestock and poultry production
Effect of depth of house fly pupae in poultry manure on parasitism by six species of Pteromalidae (Hymenoptera).
The recoveries of pteromalid parasites from house fly, Musca domestica L., pupae placed in accumulated poultry manure at the surface and at depths of 3, 5, 10 and 15 cm were determined weekly for 10Expand
FILTH FLY (DIPTERA) OVIPOSITION AND LARVAL DEVELOPMENT IN POULTRY MANURE OF VARIOUS MOISTURE LEVELS
Oviposition by four species of muscid flies on poultry manure having six levels of moisture in the range of 40–90% was compared using caged populations of adults. Musca domestica L., Muscina stabul...
Field evaluation of three methods for monitoring populations of house flies (Musca domestica) (Diptera: Muscidae) and other filth flies in three types of poultry housing systems.
TLDR
Analysis of field data collected over several years in three poultry housing systems indicated that the baited jug-trap was a reliable method of sampling house flies, and sticky ribbons provided additional information on two other fly species. Expand
