Effect of different colours on the selection of oviposition site by Musca domestica nebulo


Effect of different colours on the selection of oviposition site by Musca domestica nebulo



Advances in zoology, environmental degradation and biodiversity Proceedings of the 10th All India Congress of Zoology and National symposium on environmental degradation and animal biodiversity: the problems of India and its remedial measures, held on 14th-18th October 1998 at Magadh University, Bodh Gaya, Bihar, India: 126-129



The relative attractivity of different colours for the selection of oviposition sites by Musca domestica nebulo was examined at 18, 26, 32 and 40 degrees C, by recording the percentage of flies that were attracted to a particular colour within 20 minutes of exposure. White was the least attractive colour at all temperatures.
