Native fly dispersal in the field evaluation of a prospective factory strain of the screwworm, Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel) (Diptera: Calliphoridae)

Environmental Entomology, 142: 101-105

Native fly dispersal in the field evaluation of a prospective factory strain of the screwworm, Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel) (Diptera: Calliphoridae)

Sterile flies from a prospective mass-production strain of Cochliomyia hominivorax were tested in the field on 2 occasions between August and November 1981 in the Pacific coastal plain of Chiapas, Mexico. In Test I, flies were released over a 30 x 120-km area where all 9 sentinel sheep sampling sites were located 5-23 km (including 5 sites at <10 km) from the nearest perimeter. The maximum egg-mass sterility rate (25%) was obtained by the 3rd of 6 weeks of sterile fly releases.
