The essential oil of E. globulus leaves or camphor against the maturation of Oestrus ovis larvae was evaluated at the laboratory conditions. Camphor at concentrations 1:0 and 1.1 showed 100% mortality rate. At concentrations of 1:2-1:6 the mortality rate ranged between 45-98%. On the other hand, 38 or 27.5% of the developed pupae emerged to adults but only 36.8% of them were fertile. Camphor is safely used in Medicine. So, it is recommended in controlling the zoonotic myiasis producer, O. ovis.
