Information about the world's flies

Southern Association of Agricultural Experiment Station Drectors

Southern Association of Agricultural Experiment Station Directors

SAAESD will provide quantitative data to analyze fly borne spread of pathogens from animal production systems into the urban environment and the ability to assess the risk of fly-borne illness associated with different production techniques and distances from production facilities. The project will develop new control technologies for muscoid flies. These technologies will be disseminated to producers to reduce the abundance of muscoid flies thereby increasing the health and quality of livestock and reducing their economic impact.
