Comparative repellency of pine, mineral, motor, and silicon oil to house flies, Musca domestica L., was tested. In binary choice bioassays with flies feeding on 20 microliter of watery honey solutions mixed with (treatment) or without (control) 10 microliter of one of the oils under investigation, only pine oil completely suppressed feeding and remained inhibitory even after 24 h. Approaching pine oil-treated honey solution, 95% of flies were repelled at a distance >6 mm from the source… Expand
Repellency of α-pinene against the house fly, Musca domestica.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that α-pinene exhibits natural baseline repellency against the house fly, elicits a specific physiological response in this fly, and that functional or structural modification of 1 in particular may yield novel fly repellents with desirable properties. Expand
EXCITO-REPELLENCY EFFECTS OF SALVIA SCLAREA L. (LAMIACEAE) EXTRACTS ON ADULT HOUSE FLIES, MUSCA DOMESTICA L. (DIPTERA: MUSCIDAE)
TLDR
It is thus conceivable to search for native means of combating house flies by fractionating the active ingredients in the Clary sage in the light of its excito-repellency effects. Expand
Repellent effectiveness of seven plant essential oils, sunflower oil and natural insecticides against horn flies on pastured dairy cows and heifers
TLDR
Basil, geranium, lavender, lemongrass and peppermint repelled more flies than sunflower oil alone for a period ranging from 1.5 to 4 h after treatments applied to heifers, while safer's soap, natural pyrethrins without piperonyl butoxide and ethyl alcohol alone were not efficient at repelling flies.

Insecticidal properties of several essential oils on the house fly (Musca domestica L.)
  • R. Pavela
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Phytotherapy research : PTR
  • 2008
TLDR
Essential oils from Pogostemon cablin proved to be the most efficient at a lethal dose of 3 µg/fly after topical application after screened against the house fly, Musca domestica L. under laboratory conditions. Expand
Plant essential oils and potassium metabisulfite as repellents for Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae)
TLDR
Peppermint oil appears to be the best candidate for field testing to determine the effectiveness and feasibility of using essential oils as part of a push-pull management strategy against D. suzukii, the first time that essential oils have been evaluated and proven effective in preventing fruit-infesting flies from contacting attractive stimuli. Expand
Identification of Volatiles From Plants Infested With Honeydew-Producing Insects, and Attraction of House Flies (Diptera: Muscidae) to These Volatiles
TLDR
Although fly capture rates in the semifield setting were low, benzaldehyde and (Z)-3-hexenyl acetate were consistently attractive to house flies as individual compounds and as components of volatile blends. Expand
Lethality and Vitality Efficiency of Different Extracts of Salix safsaf Leaves against the House Fly, Musca domestica L. (Diptera: Muscidae)
In the current study, insecticidal activity, growth regulation, adult performance and repellency of petroleum ether, methanol, chloroform and ethanol extracts of Salix safsaf leaves were testedExpand
Toxic and repellent activity of selected monoterpenoids (thymol, carvacrol and linalool) against the castor bean tick, Ixodes ricinus (Acari: Ixodidae).
TLDR
The phenols carvacrol and thymol can be considered as candidate ingredients for the development of novel acaricidal formulations to control the populations of I. ricinus and the spread of related tick-borne diseases. Expand
Lethal and Sublethal Effects of Thyme Oil (Thymus vulgaris L.) on the House Fly (Musca domestica Lin.)
TLDR
The application of sublethal doses to the adults of the housefly has significantly decreased the longevity of both sexes and the most significant mortality was seen with larvae which emerged from eggs which were laid by the treated female flies. Expand
Evaluation of linalool, a natural antimicrobial and insecticidal essential oil from basil: effects on poultry.
TLDR
It is suggested that future studies to evaluate the addition of linalool to the litter, where it may be used as an antimicrobial or an insect repellent or to produce a calming effect, may be safely added to chicken feed. Expand

Repellent and Insecticidal Properties of Essential Oils Against Housefly, Musca Domestica L.
TLDR
31 essential oils from different botanicals, studied for repellency and direct toxicity (insecticidal) against laboratory bred houseflies, showed 100% repellent activity and biochemical studies of these promising oils may emerge new leads in developing future pesticides. Expand
Attractants for Synanthropic Flies: Chemical Attractants for Domestic Flies
TLDR
Slow-release solid synthetic fly attractant formulations were evaluated against Musca domestica L. on poultry ranches; Compositions that contained these 4 or 5 chemicals were superior to commercial sugar bait toxicant formulations, including those containing (Z)-9-tricosene. Expand
Repellency of Aqueous Solutions of Boric Acid and Polybor 3 to House Flies (Diptera: Muscidae)
TLDR
Results indicate that 2.25% boric acid and 3.0% polybor are optimal treatment levels for repellency to high levels of both borates. Expand

A test for repellency to non‐biting flies and a comparison of repellents using Musca domestica L.
A system for testing the effect of a repellent against nonbiting flies attracted to man was developed for Musca domestica L. and Musca vetustissima Walk., and was used to compare the repellency of aExpand
Integrated house fly control: populations of fly larvae and predaceous mites, Macrocheles muscaedomesticae, in poultry manure after larvicide treatment.

TLDR
It was concluded that larviciding of the manure with nonselective insecticides is detrimental to mite predators of the immature stages of the house fly and should not be practiced. Expand
Resistance of house flies in Florida to organophosphorus insecticides.
TLDR
Based on the LC-,50’s in tests with contact sprays, house flies collected in eight dairies and six poultry houses in Florida in 1957 were 3 to 133 times as resistant as normal flies to malathion, while in 1954 and 1951 the resistance to Dipterex or malathions baits did not ex- ceed 8 times normal in flies from the barns where these four strains were collected.
