Blow Flies are found worldwide, occurring nearly every place inhabited by human. [...] Key Method In this experimental study, totally 600 blow flies were collected from 3sites of Sari city (April–Dec 2016). Bacteria on the external surface and digestive system of each fly were identified by using standard tests based on Bergay s technique. Antibiotic susceptibility test was performed by disc diffusion method based on CLSI. There were 2 peaks of fly activity in a year; (Jun-July and Aug-Sep). The most common…Expand

This study re-emphasizes the need for maintainance of high sanitary standards around human dwellings and isolated bacteria and fungi species were among the isolated fungal species. Expand
Identification of bacteria which possible transmitted by Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidae) in the region of Ahvaz, SW Iran
The results of the current study confirm that flies are much more than a nuisance and that they pose potentially serious health risks, Consequently, the population of houseflies has to be controlled. Expand
Frequency of Resistance and Susceptible Bacteria Isolated from Houseflies
Houseflies collected from hospitals and slaughterhouse may be involved in the spread of drugresistant bacteria and may increase the potential of human exposure to drug resistant bacteria. Expand
Muscoid Diptera as potential vectors of bacterial agents on dairy farms in the northern region of Paraná, Brazil Dípteros muscóides como potenciais vetores de agentes bacterianos em fazendas de exploração leiteira na região Norte do Paraná, Brasil
It is concluded that regional flies are potential mechanical vectors of microbial agents able to cause enteritis in goats, mastitis in cows, and contamination of milk products for human consumption. Expand
Role of Flies as Vectors of Foodborne Pathogens in Rural Areas
It is demonstrated that flies can transmit foodborne pathogens and their associated toxin and resistance and the areas of higher risk are those in closer proximity to animal production sites. Expand
The blow fly, Chrysomya megacephala, and the house fly, Musca domestica, as mechanical vectors of pathogenic bacteria in Northeast Thailand.
The number of C. megacephala positive for bacteria significantly higher than for M. domestica was found, suggesting that both fly species should be considered potential mechanical vectors of bacterial pathogens associated with human habitations year-round in this region of Northeast Thailand.

The authors collected flies from Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport to examine for the presence of bacteria and to determine the sensitivity patterns of those bacteria, finding the predominant species was Chrysomya megacephala. Expand
Prevalence and Relative Risk of Cronobacter spp., Salmonella spp., and Listeria monocytogenes Associated with the Body Surfaces and Guts of Individual Filth Flies
The prevalence of food-borne pathogens was three times greater in the guts than on the body surfaces of the flies, and the relative risk of flies carrying any of the three pathogens was associated with the type of pathogen, the body part of the fly, andThe ambient temperature. Expand
Comparison between Musca domestica and Chrysomya megacephala as carriers of bacteria in northern Thailand.
A comparison between the common house fly and the Oriental latrine fly was assessed for their potential as carriers of bacteria in urban areas of Chiang Mai Province, northern Thailand, finding C. megacephala was significantly more likely to carry bacterial species than M. domestica. Expand
Seasonal Abundance of Blow Flies (Diptera: Calliphoridae) in Three Urban Parks of Bangkok, Thailand
Abundance levels of the two most common species were negatively correlated with the temperature and relative humidity and Hemipyrellia ligurriens was more abundant during June to October, while C. rufi facies peaked in September and C. megacephala was captured in January. Expand
