TL;DR: Host-feeding patterns of mosquitoes collected in the Borough of Queens in New York City in July and August 2000 were investigated using an indirect ELISA and a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-heteroduplex assay, and species identifications of Culex mosquitoes made using morphological characteristics were confirmed with a PCR assay that employed species-specific primers.

Impact of the darkling beetle Alphitobius diaperinus (Panzer) on establishment of the predaceous beetle Carcinops pumilio (Erichson) for Musca domestica control in caged-layer poultry houses

BIOLOGICAL CONTROL, 20(1), 8–15.

By: D. Watson*, P. Kaufman*, D. Rutz* & C. Glenister

author keywords: house fly; litter beetle; darkling beetle; hister beetle; poultry; biological control; Integrated Pest Management
TL;DR: Researchers observed the interaction of three insects commonly found in poultry manure: a filth fly predator, Carcinops pumilio, and two poultry pests, the house fly, Musca domestica L. (Muscidae), and the darkling beetle, Alphitobius diaperinus (Panzer) (Tenebrionidae). (via Semantic Scholar)

Vector competence of Musca domestica (Diptera : Muscidae) for Yersinia pseudotuberculosis

JOURNAL OF MEDICAL ENTOMOLOGY, 38(2), 333–335.

By: L. Zurek n, S. Denning n, C. Schal n & D. Watson n

author keywords: house fly; Yersinia pseudotuberculosis; vector potential; turkeys
MeSH headings : Animals; Houseflies / microbiology; Insect Vectors / microbiology; Yersinia pseudotuberculosis / physiology
TL;DR: It is demonstrated that house flies can carry Y. pseudotuberculosis for a considerable period and therefore must be considered as a potential mechanical vector of pseudotubculosis infection. (via Semantic Scholar)

Diversity and contribution of the intestinal bacterial community to the development of Musca domestica (Diptera : Muscidae) larvae

JOURNAL OF MEDICAL ENTOMOLOGY, 37(6), 924–928.

author keywords: house fly; intestinal tract; bacteria; artificial medium; larval development
MeSH headings : Agar; Animals; Bacteria / classification; Bacteria / isolation & purification; Biological Assay; Culture Media; Digestive System / microbiology; Houseflies / microbiology; Larva / microbiology
TL;DR: Pure cultures of individual bacterial species isolated from the intestinal tract of larvae from turkey bedding supported development of flies to a much greater extent than those isolated from larvae from corn silage. (via Semantic Scholar)
