Laboratory studies on the behaviour of Lucilia sericata (Meig.) (Dipt., Calliphoridae) as affected by abiotic factors



Laboratory studies on the behaviour of Lucilia sericata (Meig.) (Dipt., Calliphoridae) as affected by abiotic factors



Zeitschrift fur Angewandte Entomologie 92(4): 384-398



The effects of light, temperature and relative humidity on the behaviour of Lucilia sericata (Mg.) were investigated in the laboratory in the German Federal Republic. The flies were kept under various conditions: females and males isolated or together, provided with sugar only or sugar and meat, fed continuously or starved for 24 h prior to the tests. A strong positive phototaxis was observed in all the variants; it was increased when the flies were provided with meat.
