Experimental control of stable flies, Stomoxys calcitrans (Diptera: Muscidae), by releases of chemosterilized adults



Experimental control of stable flies, Stomoxys calcitrans (Diptera: Muscidae), by releases of chemosterilized adults



Canadian Entomologist 104(6): 885-887



Stomoxys calcitrans (L.) can be easily reared and sterilised with chemicals or by irradiation, but the fact that both sexes feed on blood is a deterrent to mass releases. Also, there is at present no suitable technique for sexing to allow the release of males only. However, if releases were made when the natural population was small, the numbers needed would not cause annoyance.
