This disparity is due to dense dispersal of humans in an urban area compared to wide dispersal of humans in rural areas. Courtship and copulatory behaviors are the most important and the most complex behaviors exhibited by the house fly. 1993. A housefly has been recorded to have flown 20 miles. Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences Entomology. Adult house fly, Musca domestica Linnaeus. To break down harder foods, houseflies deposit saliva and stomach contents from their crop onto their food, which makes it easier to digest. 2006.

Traps can be baited with molasses, sugar, fruit or meat, and often are used in combination with a device that captures the attracted flies. The head contains one pair of dark hooks. Feeding larvae prefer temperatures between 30 and 35 degrees Celsius. The shape of the pupa is quite different from the larva, being bluntly rounded at both ends. Houseflies are closely associated with humans, drawn to urban areas and high densities of human waste and garbage that is their food. March 26, 2012 Manure can also be liquefied and stored in lagoons anaerobically, though at some point the solids need to be separated. In North America and Europe, houseflies are common from July through September. Humans may use housefly larvae or pupae to feed domesticated animals. at http://ento.psu.edu/extension/factsheets/house-flies. Prior to pupation, larvae migrate for up to 3 to 4 days to a dry area. 1983. The head of the adult fly has reddish-eyes and sponging mouthparts. 1981.

Knockdown resistance (kdr) to pyrethroid insecticides has been found in numerous insect species,kdr causes nerve insensitivity by altering the primary target of these insecticides, the voltage-sensitive sodium channel. Axtell RC. Gândaci roșii. Serious problems occur when cities or suburban development occur near poultry production facilities, as residents usually will not tolerate the large numbers of flies emanating from such facilities. On the behavior and sensory physiology of the house-fly larva, Musca domestica L. II. They may dis­perse as lit­tle as 27 to 1080 m in urban habi­tats to 5 to 7 miles in rural habi­tats. This is possibly because dark toned objects trigger housefly courtship. The adult black dump fly is similar in appearance to the adult house fly (Hogsette and Jacobs 2003). Rutz DA, Axtell RC. Ichneumonids and other parasitoids, as well as some predatory insects (especially histerids [Coleoptera: Histeridae] and staphylinids [Coleoptera: Staphylinidae]), also contribute to fly mortality, but under optimal fly breeding conditions the house fly quickly builds to high numbers. Bacteria on housefly eggs, Musca domestica, suppress fungal growth in chicken manure through nutrient depletion or antifungal metabolites. at http://www.uky.edu/Ag/CritterFiles/casefile/insects/flies/houseflies/houseflies.htm.

Jacobs Sr., S. 2007. Accessed In situations where plumbing is lacking, such as open latrines, serious health problems can develop, especially if there are outdoor food markets, hospitals, or slaughter houses nearby. In the context of livestock or poultry production, however, some flies are inevitable. The larvae have mouth hooks used to filter-feed on masses of bacteria. The posterior spiracles are slightly raised and the spiracular openings are sinuous slits which are completely surrounded by an oval black border. Impact of the darkling beetle.

Musca domestica is the most common flies all over the world. Outdoors, the control of flies includes the use of boric acid in the bottom of dumpsters, treatment of vertical walls adjacent to dumpsters and other breeding sites with microencapsulated or wettable powder formulation, and the use of fly baits near adult feeding sources. Canadian Entomologist 115: 1555-1561. The pathogens are transported on the fly s cuticle and proboscis, by regurgitation or through the feces (Greenberg, 1970, 1973). The distribution of sex-determinants in field populations of Musca domestica domestica L. was studied in 62 samples of flies collected at 53 sites (animal farms) between 1975 and 1981 in an area stretching North–South from Denmark (+ Iceland) to Sicily.. Karyological observations and genetic analyses demonstrated the existence of three types of population along a latitudinal cline. Males seek to mate with many females. at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/jez.1401240202/abstract. Very little manure is needed for larval development, and sand or soil containing small amounts of degraded manure allows for successful belowground development. Pen. The housefly, Musca domestica, is a serious threat to human and animal health.Houseflies are vectors of more than 100 human and animal intestinal diseases. Insects: Spiders and Other Terrestrial Arthropods. They can beat their wings up to 1,000 times per minute, which creates a buzzing noise. Mating lasts 30 minutes to 2 hours. Galapagos Species List - Musca domestica Linnaeus, 1758. Notes on certain points of economic importance in the biology of the house fly. MacDonald RS, Surgeoner GA, Solomon KR. In North Florida, releases conducted with Sphalangia endius showed that they could successfully parasitize pupae, both above and below the soil surface. living in the Nearctic biogeographic province, the northern part of the New World. Nutrient-rich substrates such as animal manure provide an excellent developmental substrate. Figure 4. (Hafez, 2005; Hewitt, 1914; Kelling, et al., 2002; Marshall, 2006; Robinson, 2005; Swan and Papp, 1972), Housefly larvae exhibit migratory behavior in preparation for their pupal stage. 1973. (Hewitt, 1914; Marshall, 2006; Murvosh, et al., 1964; Robinson, 2005; Swan and Papp, 1972), Females may then accept or reject copulation. 1993. Fruit and vegetable cull piles, partially incinerated garbage, and incompletely composted manure also are highly favored sites for breeding. In this way, females are capable of perception of larval density. They are most abundant during the warm seasons, but some adults may survive through the winter season in temperate areas. Monitoring insecticide resistance in house flies from New York dairies. Flies and tuberculosis. 1991. Though we edit our accounts for accuracy, we cannot guarantee all information in those accounts. The home range depends on the availability of resources, specifically human garbage. Dahlem, G. 2003. January 24, 2012 Females can lay all of their eggs after fertilization by just one male.

The female may avoid the male at any time, specifically if she has mated before. Accessed Once the larvae hatch, they burrow into feces with their two mouth hooks and take up nutrients from the material. Hogsette JA. A house­fly has been recorded to have flown 20 miles. Overview Top of page. Larvae survive best in compost mixtures of decaying vegetables enriched with dung or animal material. Pupa: The pupal stage, about 8 mm long, is passed in a pupal case formed from the last larval skin which varies in color from yellow, red, brown, to black as the pupa ages. Muscidifurax raptor wasp on a fly puparium. Houseflies are found almost anywhere, especially in areas that humans also inhabit. 2008. Tobin, P.C. The lower surface of these lobes contains numerous transverse grooves that serve as liquid food channels. Females tend to lay their eggs in locations with many other larvae are present, because this signals that the medium is rich in nutrients. Photograph by Matt Aubuchon, University of Florida.

Observations on the ethology and ecology of various Diptera associated with Northern California poultry ranches. Annals of the Entomological Society of America 48: 251-257. House fly (Musca: Muscidae) control in broiler-breeder poultry houses by pupal parasites (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae): indigenous parasite species and releases of. Feeding occurs in the larval stage, and the wasp eventually emerges as an adult. New York, N.Y.: Harper & Row, Publishers, Inc.. Tobin, E., J. Stoffolano. Pathogenic organisms are picked up by flies from garbage, sewage and other sources of filth, and then transferred on their mouthparts, through their vomitus, feces and contaminated external body parts to human and animal food. It breeds in excreta, especially human faeces, and is the main insect vector of trachoma, a major cause of blindness This dis­par­ity is due to dense dis­per­sal of hu­mans in an urban area com­pared to wide dis­per­sal of hu­mans in rural areas. The female can be distinguished from the male by the relatively wide space between the eyes (in males, the eyes almost touch). Although this fly species does not bite, the control of Musca domestica is vital to human health and comfort in many areas of the world. At birth, larvae weigh .008 to .02 g. (Hewitt, 1914; Marshall, 2006; Murvosh, et al., 1964; Robinson, 2005; Swan and Papp, 1972), Female houseflies exhibit minimal parental investment by choosing a moist, nutritious material to deposit her eggs in. Food and materials on which the flies can lay eggs must be removed, destroyed as a breeding medium, or isolated from the egg-laying adult. Lateral view of the head of an adult house fly, Musca domestica Linnaeus. (Marshall, 2006; Robinson, 2005; Swan and Papp, 1972), Houseflies are primarily found in temperate regions. Houseflies are 4 to 8 mm long, and 6.35 mm long on average. (Bryant and Hall, 1999; Kozielska, et al., 2006; Kozielska, et al., 2011; Marshall, 2006; Robinson, 2005; Swan and Papp, 1972), In warm weather, housefly larvae hatch within 8 to 12 hours. Disclaimer: It is important to manage potential insecticide resistance by rotating formulations with different modes of action. However, another study found that structures containing swine, horse, sheep, cattle, and poultry varied in fly abundance, with swine facilities containing the most and poultry the least. Large sticky traps for capturing house flies. Journal of Economic Entomology 86: 1746-1753. (Bryant and Hall, 1999; Kozielska, et al., 2006; Kozielska, et al., 2011; Marshall, 2006; Robinson, 2005; Swan and Papp, 1972), Houseflies exhibit a polygynous mating system. Of particular concern is the movement of flies from animal or human feces to food that will be eaten uncooked by humans. Figure 8. January 24, 2012 Kelling, F., F. Lalenti, C. Den Otter. In mating, houseflies communicate through pheromones. Intermediate density is the most favorable growing condition for larvae. Mating Competitiveness of Chemosterilized and Normal Male House Flies. Mouthparts are comprised of two fleshy, grooved lobes called the labella, which are attached to the lower lip, known as the labium. With the increasing incidence of insecticide resistant house fly populations, rising costs of insecticides and a growing public concern about actual or potential problems associated with insecticides, interest in alternative house fly control strategies has increased. (no longer available online). Thus, K. oxytoca makes more nutrients available to the houseflies. Humans have taken advantage of this trait, developing commercial repellents with odors they find unpleasant. Gandacii germani și orientali.

These different species function better under different conditions, some performing better under cooler or warmer conditions, others parasitizing flies near the surface or deeper in the pupation medium. (Jalil and Rodriguez, 1970; LaBrecque, et al., 1962; Murvosh, et al., 1964; Tobin and Stoffolano, 1973), Male and female adult flies are able to mate by the time they are 16 and 24 hours old, respectively. Houseflies can only intake food in liquid form. A particular strain of bacteria, Klebsiella oxytoca, is known to reduce fungi growth in manure. The number of eggs produced is a function of female size which, itself, is principally a result of larval nutrition. The potential reproductive capacity of flies is tremendous, but fortunately can never be realized. "House Flies" (On-line). Other breeding mediums include rotten fruit and vegetables, old broth, boiled eggs, and even rubber. Photograph by USDA. Also, when consumed by flies, some pathogens can be harbored in the mouthparts or alimentary canal for several days, and then be transmitted when flies defecate or regurgitate. NYS IPM Pub.

Areas with low larvae density signal low levels of nutrients, whereas too high of a density means that nutrients are depleted. 2001. In insects, "incomplete metamorphosis" is when young animals are similar to adults and change gradually into the adult form, and "complete metamorphosis" is when there is a profound change between larval and adult forms. Flies do not orient to traps from a great distance, so several are normally needed for them to be effective. The more important in poultry facilities are the wasps Muscidifurax raptor and Sphalangia cameroni. The housefly (Musca domestica) is a fly of the suborder Cyclorrhapha. 1985. A female that has mated before will more likely be passive towards copulation or resist it. The courtship ritual includes orientation, landing, wing-out, leg-up, head lapping, head touching, boxing, backing, genital orientation, genital contact, and copulation. The Animal Diversity Web is an educational resource written largely by and for college students. Krafsur ES, Black IV WC, Church CJ, Barnes DA. "Musca domestica" (On-line), Animal Diversity Web.

Figure 3. Journal of Experimental Zoology, 124, 2: 199-225. Maggots immediately begin feeding on and developing in the material in which the egg was laid. The flies are inactive at night, with ceilings, beams and overhead wires within buildings, trees, and shrubs, various kinds of outdoor wires, and grasses reported as overnight resting sites. These flies are most commonly linked to outbreaks of diarrhea and shigellosis, but also are implicated in transmission of food poisoning, typhoid fever, dysentery, tuberculosis, anthrax, ophthalmia, and parasitic worms. Traps. Quantitative PCR and ligand-binding experiments indicate that the GluCl and GABACl transcripts and proteins are predominantly expressed in the adult head. Larvae complete their development in four to 13 days at optimal temperatures, but require 14 to 30 days at temperatures of 12 to 17°C. House flies are attracted to white surfaces and to baits that give off odors. Specifically, they prefer temperatures that are below 15 degrees Celsius, which is common at the edge of dung heaps or the ground immediately surrounding the dung heap. 1914. In poultry ranches, the nighttime, outdoor aggregations of flies are found mainly in the branches, and shrubs, whereas almost all of the indoor populations generally aggregated in the ceiling area of poultry houses. As the female’s wings come out, the male then strokes or caresses the head of the female.
