Insecticidal baits for the control of the house fly, Musca domestica L., came into prominence in the early 1950's (Gahan et al., 1953) and have since become important to fly control. Such control is temporary, but it is sometimes necessary. For instance, baits are the best method of control in caged poultry establishments where residues should not be applied while the birds are in the house (Anonymous 1969) and where conventional larvicide treatments have short effectivenes because of dilution or detoxification. Also, many insecticides as residual treatments cannot be used in dairies or are often washed from the Avails during cleaning. In some dairies where larval breeding is centrally located larvicide treatments may be practical. If not, remedial fly control with baits may be necessary.
