Response of female screwworm flies to a selected odor



Response of female screwworm flies to a selected odor



Annals of the Entomological Society of America 66(1): 84-85



The diminishing effect on females of Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel) exposed for short periods to the odour of fermented blood albumin in a field cage indicated that habituation, as demonstrated by a waning in response, may have occurred. Even when the interval between tests with the same flies and odours was lengthened from 15 to 75 and 120 min, complete recovery did not occur. However, an interval of at least 120 min was required between tests before significant results could be obtained.
