Special Issue Information
The biology, ecology and control of synanthropic flies are very important research topics. As more is learned about the biology and ecology of pest species, control techniques can be more species-specific and environmentally friendly. House flies, Musca domestica, stable flies, Stomoxys calcitrans, and horn flies, Haematobia irritans, are the “big 3” in many parts of the world, but there are other synanthropic species that would qualify to fit into this Special Issue.
The flies to be highlighted in the Special Issue should be pests of humans and/or animals. They may or may not transmit pathogens, and their control would help to improve the welfare of humans and animals alike. Authors who conduct traditional research as well as authors who are working on topics in genetics and semiochemicals are invited to submit their work.
