The Response of the House-fly to certain Foods and their Fermentation Products

, : The Response of the House-fly to certain Foods and their Fermentation Products. Jl. Econ. Entom, Concord, N.H., 10: 1, 102-109

This paper describes a series of experiments made with the object of obtaining a more intimate knowledge of the attractive constituents of the preferred foods of Musca domestica. Tables are given recording the results of the experiments, which led to the following conclusions: Glucose, fructose, maltose, lactose, starch and dextrin are not very attractive to house-flies. Lactose and dextrin caught the largest number of flies, starch the least.

Yield of wool was estimated at 13, 257 shearings of Tsigai sheep in Central Slovakia and the Turize region between 1956 and 1961. Yield was highest in the fourth year of age and fell sharply after the sixth year. Difference between the second and...
