Study on Prevalence of Gastrointestinal Nematodes and Coccidian Parasites Affecting Cattle in West Arsi zone, Ormia
Regional State, Ethiopia.
Detailed plans have been published for live traps to catch two species of tachinid acoustic parasitoids, Ormia
ochracea (Bigot) (Diptera: Tachinidae) (Cade 1979; Walker 1989) and O.
Ronald Miles, Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Binghamton University, studies the hearing of Ormia
ochracea, a house fly-sized insect that is native to the southeast United States and Central America.
Behavioral specialization among populations of the acoustically orienting parasitoid fly Ormia
ochracea utilizing different cricket species as hosts.
A parasitic fly, Ormia
depleta, whose larvae feed on mole crickets, has been used to help control this southern pest.
Their nemesis, the Ormia
ochracea fly, invaded the Hawaiian Islands from North America.
As part of their reproductive cycle, female parasitoid flies Ormia
ochracea must find their cricket hosts as a source of food for their larval offspring.
Six native species of flies of the genus Ormia
(Tachinidae) are parasitoids of various insects (some Orthoptera, some unknown), but none of their hosts is a mole cricket.
The flies are not completely species-specific in host preference; although certain species of host were found to be favored by flies in playback experiments in Florida, at least one species of ormiine, Ormia
ochracea, is attracted to several species of field cricket in the genus Gryllus (Walker 1986, 1993).
Relationship between temperature and development of the ectoparasitoid Larra bicolor (Hymenoptera: Sphecidae) and the endoparasitoid Ormia
depleta (Diptera: Tachinidae).
Andrew Mason also figured out a modern version of old equipment as he monitored an Ormia
fly's tracking the direction of a sound.
The response of an insect parasitoid, Ormia
ochracea (Tachinidae), to the uncertainty of larval success during infestation.
