ABSTRACT

The efficacy of local attractant bait (IRQ Bait) for controlling flies was evaluated under field conditions in comparison with Australian bait ( Efecto Fly Bait). The results of this study revealed that the local bait was highly significant (P < 0.05) in attracting (catching) flies if compared with Australian bait, the average number of flies attracted to local bait was 5280 in comparison with 1064 for Australian bait. Furthermore, the results showed that the glass traps of 3.18 L size was more efficient in comparison with other three types of traps used in this study in catching flies & could be recommended for local uses. Finally the results showed that the locally prepared bait reduced the density of flies in field experiment by 96.2% comparing with Australian bait.
