Abstract:A survey was conducted in 12 south Texas counties from Jan.–Apr. 1976 to evaluate swormlure-2 baited traps for detection of native screwworm flies, Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel). In 6 of the 12 test counties, native screwworms were caught before the 1st screwworm case was confirmed. In 3 of the remaining 6 counties, native screwworm flies were captured within 10 days after the 1st case was confirmed. In the other 3 counties, screwworm cases were reported several weeks prior to the 1st capture of flies. The information provided by this survey was used by program officials in the operation of the ongoing screwworm eradication program.
