Abstract

The feeding rates of adults and larvae of 5 Philonthus species were compared in the laboratory by measuring their consumption of eggs and larvae of the horn fly (Haematobia irritans). When confined in Petri dishes with abundant prey, adults and larvae of P. longicornis had a higher predation rate...

Abstract

Field mortality of horn flies caused by the arthropod community was tested by seeding colony-reared horn fly (H. irritans) eggs underneath artificial cattle pats placed in the field and collecting the emerging flies using cone traps. Mean numbers of horn flies that emerged from pats exposed to the...

Abstract

A survey of the fauna of cattle dung dropped naturally on pasture in Alachua County, Florida, USA, revealed several species of Staphylinidae, including 2 species of Platystethus. Adult P. spiculus were collected only in July 1991. Adult P. americanus were collected from March to June 1993. In the...

Abstract

The effect of Solenopsis invicta on the horn fly (Haematobia irritans) and other arthropods associated with cattle dung was evaluated in northcentral Florida, USA, pastures from August to November 1992 and 1993. Workers of S. invicta were found to infest fresh cowpats heavily and prey on horn fly...
