Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The distribution of stable flies, Stomoxys calcitrans (L.), caught on adhesive-coated Alsynite cylinder traps indicated that a significantly higher proportion of flies landed on the side most protected from the wind, and that flies were distributed equally on both sides of the traps bisected by the direction of the prevailing wind, and that the proportion of trapped flies decreased significantly with height on the trap. The landing pattern of house flies, Musca domestica L., appeared to differ from that of stable flies. As wind speed increased, the proportion of stable flies landing on the lower and downwind parts of the trap increased.
