Laboratory observation showed that males of blowfly, Chrysomyia albiceps (Wiedemann) attract to and feed on meat in adult breeding cages. Experiments under laboratory conditions of 27 +/- 3 degrees C and 60-70 R.H. showed that meat could replace water but could not replace sugar. Feeding on protein diet (meat) did not increase males longevity or their efficiency to mate with more than one female. Mating behaviour and duration of mating process did not also affected. Protein diet could not affect the percentage of egg hatching, percentage of pupation and percentage of adult emergence when the gravid virgin female were mated with protein fed males.
