Observations of fly strikes or larvipositions (n=68 in 21 days of observation) were carried out in a herd of goats during the spring in Baja California Sur, Mexico in order to identify the climatic conditions favoring larviposition activity of gravid Oestrus ovis L. flies, as well as to investigate whether a mixture of some potentially useful compounds was involved in this behavior. Hand-caught, tethered flies (n=43) were either exposed or unexposed to a combination of carbon dioxide, humidity… CONTINUE READING
