The New World screwworm fly in Libya: a review of its introduction and eradication
TLDR
During 1992 the Libyan Government should be able to officially declare the New World screwworm eradicated from Libya, making it one of the most important success stories of pest control.
Distribution and pest status of the Old World screw‐worm fly, Chrysomya bezziana (Diptera: Calliphoridae), in Papua New Guinea and the threat to Australian livestock and wildlife
The distribution of the Old World screw‐worm fly Chrysomya bezziana Villeneuve and the incidence of traumatic myiases (strikes) in livestock, humans and wild animals in Papua New Guinea (PNG) for the

Genetic Approaches for Studying Myiasis-causing Flies: Molecular Markers and Mitochondrial Genomics
TLDR
Various aspects of the organization, evolution and potential applications of the mitochondrial genome of myiasis-causing flies in Brazil, and the analysis of nuclear markers in genetic studies of populations, are discussed.
Misconceptions and Constraints
In theory, the sterile insect technique (SIT) is applicable to a wide variety of invertebrate pests. However, in practice, the approach has been successfully applied to only a few major pests.
Genetic variability in mitochondrial DNA of the screwworm,Cochliomyia hominivorax (Diptera: Calliphoridae), from Brazil
TLDR
The cladogram of the geographical distribution among the observed haplotypes suggests that the sampled screwworms probably belong to a single evolutionary lineage with populations interconnected by reduced gene flow.

Identification of compounds in an HPLC fraction from female extracts that elicit mating responses in male screwworm flies,Cochliomyia hominivorax
TLDR
When hexane extracts of mature screwworm females were chromatographed on a silica gel column, mating stimulant activity was concentrated in a fraction that eluted with hexane-ether, and apparent loss of activity from CGC peaks or from TLC cannot currently be explained.
Sex pheromone communication in the screwworm,Cochliomyia hominivorax: Ontogenetic and strain effects

TLDR
The data suggest that conditions of screwworm colonization result in gradual loss of the pheromone peak that develops three to six days after emergence in newly colonized females, and higher male responsiveness associated with longer colonization involved change in both thresholds and dose dependency and may be relevant to control of the scre WWorm via the sterile insect technique.
