Abstract : Studies on the biology and ecology of Musca sorbens, the Dog Dung Fly, are continuing to obtain necessary information for the development of an effective control measure. Life table and adult emergence studies were initiated and are nearing completion. Adult movement studies are continuing and the analysis of seasonal and relative abundance data is nearly completed. An integrated control program, utilizing several methods, is being considered. A brief discussion of research results is reported.
