Cattle flies, including Musca autumnalis, Haematobia irritans, and Hydrotaea irritans, are pests of pastured cattle. A 2-year study of the natural occurrence of entomopathogenic fungi in adult cattle flies and other flies associated with pastures showed that the four species included in the Entomophthora muscae species complex (E. muscae sensu lato) caused high infection levels in several species of flies. However, only a few specimens of cattle flies were infected by E. muscae sensu stricto… Expand
Entomophthora ferdinandii (Zygomycetes: Entomophthorales) Causing Natural Infections of Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidae) in Argentina
The identity and activity of an entomopathogenic fungus belonging to the Entomophthora muscae species complex and infecting Musca domestica in poultry houses from La Plata, Argentina, is reported.Expand
Susceptibility of biological stages of the horn fly, Haematobia irritans, to entomopathogenic fungi (Hyphomycetes)
TLDR
The hypotheses that isolates of M. anisopliae, P. fumosoroseus are pathogenic against the different biological stages of horn flies are supported by reducing adult emergence when applied on groups of eggs and pupae, and producing mortality when applied to adults. Expand
Natural Infections Caused by the Fungus Beauveria bassiana as a Pathogen of Musca domesticain the Neotropic
TLDR
A survey for entomopathogenic fungi of Musca domestica adults was conducted in poultry houses in La Plata, Buenos Aires province, Argentina, during the years 2002 and 2003, finding a first record of natural infections of house flies caused by B. bassiana for the neotropics. Expand
Pathogenicity of Three Formulations of Entomopathogenic Fungi for Control of Adult Haematobia irritans (Diptera: Muscidae)
TLDR
These studies indicate that B. bassiana and M. anisopliae were not only pathogenic to adult horn flies, but they caused mortality in a short time, and may have the potential for controlling populations of horn flies. Expand
Review of insect pathogen risks for the black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens) and guidelines for reliable production
TLDR
In this review, the known entomopathogens of Diptera, especially BSF, and their potential risks for causing disease in these insects are summarized. Expand
Flies Infected by Zombie Fungi in an Urban Fragment
TLDR
Ass associations between the occurrence of entomopathogenic fungi and parasitic flies of the family Muscidae and behaviors presented by these flies parasitized in an urban fragment of semideciduous forest in Brazil are described. Expand
Entomopathogenic fungal activity against pupae and adult Haematobia irritans (Diptera: Muscidae).
TLDR
Adult flies were more susceptible to the fungi's pathogenic action, since the E9 isolate of M. anisopliae and all of the B. bassiana isolates induced death in 100% of the flies at the 10(8) conidia ml(-1) concentration suspension. Expand
Evaluation of the fungus Beauveria bassiana (Deuteromycotina: Hyphomycetes), a potential biological control agent of Lutzomyia longipalpis (Diptera, Psychodidae).
TLDR
Data show that B. bassiana has good pathogenic potential, primarily on L. longipalpis larvae and adults, and has potential in reducing the use of chemical insecticides, resulting in benefits to humans and the environment. Expand

TLDR
A comprehensive review of all management options used against stable flies from both a historical and a technical perspective is presented for use by any entomologist, livestock producer or horticulturalist with an interest in reducing the negative impact of this pest fly. Expand

An Epizootiological Study of Entomophthora muscae in muscoid fly populations on Southern California poultry facilities, with emphasis on Musca domestica
TLDR
Infection by the pathogenic fungus Entomophthora muscae was monitored in muscoid fly populations on four caged-layer poultry facilities in southern California and prevalence was higher in male than female hosts, but was probably influenced by the shorter incubation period in males and the short holding period. Expand
Entomophthora muscae (Entomophthorales: Entomophthoracae) mycosis in the onion fly, Delia antiqua (Diptera: Anthomyiidae)
TLDR
The disease cycle, as it affects D. antiqua in the onion agroecosystem, is described, including the etiology, symptomatology, and phenology. Expand
The Fly Fauna of Heifers and the Transmission of Summer Mastitis in Denmark
TLDR
A relation between the abundance of Hydrotaea irritans and the incidence of summer mastitis in pastures was observed and this fly is most likely to be involved in the transmission of the disease. Expand
A parasitic fungus infecting yellow dungflies manipulates host perching behaviour
  • D. Maitland
  • Biology
  • Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B: Biological Sciences
  • 1994
TLDR
In yellow dungflies, E. muscae directly manipulates host perching behaviour causing infected dung flies to perch abnormally in a highly specific manner, designed to meet the fungus’s requirements for efficient spore dispersal and host infection. Expand
Entomophthora infecting wheat bulb fly at Rothamsted, Hertfordshire, 1967-71
TLDR
Conidiophores developed in most flies infected with E. muscae during the 2 weeks after peak emergence of flies, and resting spores developed in a progressively increasing proportion of infected flies. Expand
Variation in density of cattle‐visiting muscid flies between Danish inland pastures
TLDR
In most cases the mean loads of Haema‐tobia irritans and Hydrotaea irritans on heifers varied significantly in relation to site topography and shelter, which explained 65–98% of the variation in densities of horn flies and sheep head flies observed between pastures. Expand
A review of ectoparasites and their effect on cattle production.
TLDR
Investigation of physiological and nutritional responses in cattle infested or not infested with horn flies shows that total energy balance is altered when an animal is exposed to ectoparasite infestations, thereby resulting in decreased productivity. Expand
Mortality in hibernating turnip moth larvae, Agrotis segetum, caused by Tolypocladium cylindrosporum
TLDR
Host range studies with 10 insect species indicated that the fungus is probably specific to hibernating cutworms and the ability of the fungus to infect insects at low temperatures may be related to a relatively low optimum temperature for growth of 21 °C, which is lower than for the majority of entomopathogenic hyphomycetes. Expand
Genetic variation within the insect-pathogenic genus Entomophthora, focusing on the E. muscae complex, using PCR—RFLP of the ITS II and the LSU rDNA
TLDR
Conidial morphology was of predictive value for the overall taxonomy of the genus Entomophthora, as the genus clustered together in the analysis of the LSU rDNA and in both analyses the E. muscae complex clustered into three different clades, which support the validity of E. schizophorae and E. syrphi as separate species.
