The temperature preferences of the motile stages of Stomoxys calcitrans Linnaeus (Diptera: Muscidae)



The temperature preferences of the motile stages of Stomoxys calcitrans Linnaeus (Diptera: Muscidae)



Onderstepoort Journal of Veterinary Research 47(1): 7-11



When adults of Stomoxys calcitrans (L.) were exposed in the laboratory to a temperature gradient, 66% of them selected temperatures between 20.1 and 32.5 deg C. The larvae preferred temperatures between 19.5 and 33.2 deg C. Although the differences in the temperature preferences of the different larval instars were not significant, fully fed larvae appeared to prefer slightly cooler conditions than the feeding stages.
