Abstract

Post-embryonic Development of Ophyra aenescens
(Wiedemann, 1830) (Diptera: Muscidae), in Different Diets, under Laboratory
Conditions - The performance of various diets (bovine meat, fish- sardine,
shrimp, dog faeces, and banana) in Ophyra aenescens development was evaluated. The
biology was studied in an incubator (BOD) at 271°C and 8010% of RH. The
developmental time from larvae to adult, the developmental time and viability of larvae and
pupae, the weight of pupae as well as the sex ratio of the emerging adults were also
determined. Beef and shrimp were the more efficient diets for rearing O. aenescens.
