In order to circumscribe the breeding sites of stomoxes in the Makokou region, eight potentially favorable environments were sampled from January to June 2007 in three habitats: primary and secondary forest (natural environments) and the anthropic environment (artificial or disturbed areas). In the primary forest, three types of substrates were collected: litter, elephant dung and Cephalophus droppings. In the secondary forest, two types of substrates: litter and monkey droppings. In villages…

Apparent Densities of Stomoxys species (Diptera, Muscidae) of different Physiological Ages caught with Vavoua Trap differ With Landscape and trapping period

The main aim of this study was to determine the trap apparent density of Stomoxys and associate it to their diurnal activity rhythm and landscape and S. niger niger was the most frequent in all biotopes and Galim recorded the highest ADT.

Abundance and Diurnal Activity Rhythm of Stomoxys spp. in a Wildlife-human Interface in Makokou (North East-Gabon)

The aim of the study was to determine the abundance and diurnal activity rhythm of Stomoxyinae at the Ivindo National park and its environs, 14 Vavoua traps were set-up during the rainy season (25th

Molecular identification of Stomoxys and musca (Diptera: Muscidae) of veterinary importance in the pasture area of Ngaoundere

Pasture flies are abundant pests in rangelands of Ngaoundere and information on their species composition is weak. For this reason a cross sectional entomological prospection using a Vavoua trap was

Fauna and Ecology of Dipterous (Díptera, Muscidae) Livestock Biocenoses of Ukraine

The results obtained are the basis for the development of innovative, scientifically grounded schemes for control and the fight against parasitic insects at livestock enterprises in eastern and central Ukraine.

This study was designed to identify the landing preference sites of common hematophagous symbovine Dipterans and relate it to the FMD shedding sites. Three sets of zebu Goudali (from the DFG-COBE

Risk Factors for the Contamination of Wild Stomoxys niger niger Macquart 1851 (Diptera: Muscidae) with the Foot-and-Mouth Disease Virus

Flies were contaminated less frequently on animals without clinical signs than those on animals with clinical signs, but this difference was not significant, and FMDV RNA was found in the epithelial vesicles of all clinically sick animals.

Ecology of zoophilic flies in livestock biocenoses of Ukraine

In modern animal husbandry of Ukraine, there are still some unresolved issues related to the high number of zoophilic flies in the territories of facilities and the spread of animal infectious and parasitic diseases, which contributes to improving the effectiveness of measures to control ectoparasites.

Comparative Efficacy of Unbaited Modified Vavoua and Nzi Traps in the Capture of S. niger niger M. 1851 and S. calcitrans L. 1758 in Ngaoundere-Cameroon

The MVT can serve as a simple and efficient tool for the survey and control of stable flies in the Adamawa plateau and elsewhere and from the Pearson’s correlation test, there was a negative and significant correlation between the two meteorological parameters.

Efficacy of Modified Vavoua and Nzi Traps in the Capture of Stable Flies: A Preliminary Field Trial in Cameroon

There is need for a simple, cheap and efficient collection and control tool for the different stable fly-species in hyperinfested foci. The efficacy of a modified unbaited Vavoua trap (MVT) was



Distribution and abundance of hematophagous flies (Glossinidae, Stomoxys, and Tabanidae) in two national parks of Gabon

A seasonal inventory of hematophagous flies in Ivindo (INP) and Moukalaba-Doudou (MDNP) National Parks found the Glossinidae was the most abundant group and constitutes about 60% of the captured flies compared to the Stomoxys and Tabanidae with 28% and 12%, respectively, and each fly group seemed to reach maximum abundance in different habitats.

Biology and ecology of Stomoxys nigra Macquart and Stomoxys calcitrans (L.) (Diptera, Muscidae) in Mauritius

Abstract The distribution and seasonal abundance of Stomoxys nigra nigra Macq. and S. calcitrans (L.) in Mauritius was determined by field surveys in 1973–74. S. nigra, the species of major

Trials of traps and attractants for Stomoxys spp. (Diptera: Muscidae).

Five blue and black cloth traps designed for tsetse were tested for their ability to catch Stomoxys spp. in Kenya. Significantly greatest catches were obtained with Vavoua traps, which then were used

Are stable flies (Diptera: Stomoxyinae) vectors of Trypanosoma vivax in the Central African Republic?

The hypothesis that stable flies could be good vectors of T vivax in this country is supported by three main observations: i) stable flies were very abundant at the cattle resting site; ii) an estimation of the 'contact index' between the cattle and stable flies demonstrated close interactions between cattle andstable flies at this site, particularly during the rainy season; and iii) there was a good correlation between the apparent stable fly densities at the resting site and the frequency of Tvivax.

Temperature Effects on Development and Survival of Two Stable Flies, Stomoxys calcitrans and Stomoxys niger niger (Diptera: Muscidae), in La Réunion Island

Overall, the results suggest that S. calcitrans is better adapted than S. niger, in terms of adult production from eggs, in the temperature range of La Réunion, on the basis of the survival and developmental rate of the immature stages.

Microsatellite loci in the stable fly, Stomoxys niger niger (Diptera: Muscidae) on La Réunion Island

Six polymorphic micros Satellite markers have been isolated from a microsatellite-enriched DNA library from the stable fly, Stomoxys niger niger, and cross-species amplification of four of these loci produced interpretable results, two of which would be useful for population biology studies.
