Comparative study of the efficiency of the system of dispersing anaesthetised flies, using as control the system of dispersal with boxes, for the eradication of the screwworm, Cochliomyia hominivorax Coquerel (Diptera Calliphoridae).



Comparative study of the efficiency of the system of dispersing anaesthetised flies, using as control the system of dispersal with boxes, for the eradication of the screwworm, Cochliomyia hominivorax Coquerel (Diptera Calliphoridae).



Folia Entomologica Mexicana (54): 130-131



Brief details are given of tests carried out in Chiapas State, Mexico, to evaluate an alternative to the current method of releasing sterilised males of Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel) in cardboard boxes, each containing 1500-2200 flies. Flies were anaesthetised by exposure to 3-5 degrees C and released (not in boxes) from an aircraft flying at an altitude of 1000-1500 ft. As they fell, they absorbed enough heat to move and fly.
