Chromotaxis effect on chemosignal influence by (Z)-9-tricosene and kairomone mixture for the effective attraction of house fly (Musca domestica L.) in traps

Author(s): S Kannan, Lokesh Makam, SP Venkatesh Prasad and Remya Kolarath
Abstract: House flies (Musca domestica L.) are major disease-spreading vectors in a variety of both outdoor and indoor conditions, especially near livestock farms and domestic waste disposal landfills. Presently no effective choices are available for the effective control of house flies as these flies’ have developed resistance to all available synthetic pesticides. Pheromone traps play a vital role in house fly management in both indoor and outdoor conditions. The present study was conducted to investigate, observe and evaluate the influence of different colours (chromotaxis) in choosing trap colours along with pheromone (Z)-9-tricosene, a chemosignal, and food bait to attract and kill Musca domestica.
