  • Abstract During long post‐feeding periods, adult tephritid flies (and apparently other non‐blood feeding Diptera and even Hymenoptera) engage in behaviour consisting of oral extrusion and aeration of liquid droplets of varying size (‘bubbling’), proboscis pumping, and occasional deposition of regurgitate on the substrate that is followed by subsequent re‐ingestion. Unlike evaporative cooling, which occurs in some insects when heat‐stressed, these regurgitation behaviours take place regularly at… CONTINUE READING
