This study was designed to identify the landing preference sites of common hematophagous symbovine Dipterans and relate it to the FMD shedding sites. Three sets of zebu Goudali (from the DFG-COBE

Williams traps reduced the numbers of Stomoxys calcitrans (L.) at Taronga Zoo, Sydney, Australia, by 79.2% in 7.5 days. This was achieved at an average rate of reduction of 26.1% of the adult

Feeding Incidence of Stable Flies on Beef Cattle, as Influenced by Temperature, Relative Humidity, and Light

Stable fly adults fed more readily in the early morning and late afternoon than they did at midday, but since time is only relative, one cannot attribute this varied biting rate to time of day, but instead to the environmental conditions that were prevalent during those hours.

Exploitation of bedding in dairy outdoor calf hutches by immature house and stable flies (Diptera: Muscidae).

The estimated 25,000–40,000 house and stable fly maggots that develop in an outdoor calf hutch during a summer represent an outcome of dairy management that warrants corrective action.

The biting fly Stomoxys calcitrans (L.) in dairy herds in New Zealand

Little relation between daily fly abundance and milk yield's was found and the presence of 15 flies/animal will cause restlessness, and subsequent interference with normal grazing habits.

Effects of Stable Flies (Diptera: Muscidae) on Weight Gains of Grazing Yearling Cattle

Abstract Differences in weight gains caused by stable flies, Stomoxys calcitrans (L.), on grazing yearling steer/calves averaged 0.2 kg per steer in a 3-yr study on canyon range pastures in West

Populations and Economic Impacts of Stable Flies on Cattle

Stable flies occurred through the summers at all locations and the average population measurements at different locations varied by a ratio of more than 5 to 1, but seasonal variations were similar on most feedlots.

Behavioural responses of dairy cattle to the stable fly, Stomoxys calcitrans, in an open field environment

Ratios of leg stamps and head throws to fly numbers dropped significantly through time, suggesting habituation to pain associated with fly biting and methods incorporating cow behaviour are recommended for future studies of economic impact.

Overwintering Behavior of Stable Flies in Manure Mounds 12

Stable fly larvae easily avoid freezing by migrating downwards in manure mounds during the winter using the larval migration model, and survival of a portion of overwintering larvae seems almost certain.
