Abstract:Newly emerged adult Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel) were treated orally or topically with solutions of iodine alone, potassium iodide alone, or iodine in potassium iodide, and survival, egg production, and egg hatchability were assessed when the flies were 7 days old. Iodine in potassium iodide applied as multiple oral treatments sterilized screw-worm females, and the severity of the antifertility effect was determined by the concentration of the solution.
