Analysis of field data collected over several years in three poultry housing systems (narrow caged-layer houses, high-rise caged-layer houses, and broiler-breeder layer houses) indicated that the baited jug-trap was a reliable method of sampling house flies, Musca domestica L.; sticky ribbons provided additional information on two other fly species. Relative frequency of house fly capture indicated that this fly was present in all poultry systems in North Carolina from May to October, while… CONTINUE READING
