Abstract

House flies are pests of medical and veterinary importance. They are known to be susceptible to fungal conidia presented in sugar baits. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential for commercial formulations of entomopathogenic fungi to be used as bait for fly control. Differences in sporulation by product were found. Current formulations may influence fly feeding on baits, but because formulations may protect conidia. Additional research into more attractive formulations is warranted.
