Captures of male and female screwworm, Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel), secondary screwworm, C. macellaria (F.), and other flies (mainly sarcophagid) were 1.7, 1.7, 6.3, and 6.2 times greater, respectively, in an electrocutor grid trap than in the newly developed wind oriented trap (WO). Higher captures by the grid trap than the WO traps in both types of habitats (windy and protected) indicate that design modifications of the WO trap are necessary for it to achieve its full potential of performance.
