Attraction of the housefly (Musca domestica L.)

Attraction of the housefly (Musca domestica L.)

Proceedings of the Section Experimental and Applied Entomology of the Netherlands Entomological Society 9: 201-204

Ultraviolet (UV) light attracts more houseflies compared to green and white light. The attractiveness of UV light is not effected by its spectral composition. The number of flies attracted does not seem to change when a UV lamp is combined with moving elements, although the time spend on the lamp decreases. A few odours were also examined for their ability to attract houseflies.
