Interests: biology of Dipteran disease vectors; fly-microbe interactions; genomics, transcriptomics and microbiome analysis of Dipteran pests affecting livestock and humans
House flies and stable flies are of utmost importance nationally and internationally because of the adverse effects they have on people and their animals. House flies are notorious for their ability to transmit pathogens and because of the nuisance factor they create for people and animals alike. Stable flies are known for their persistent blood-feeding behavior and the accompanying pain and discomfort. Both sexes take blood and hosts includes humans, their pets and domestic and exotic animals worldwide. Life-threatening outbreaks in several countries have been attributed to byproducts of large-scale crop and animal agriculture. This special issue will focus on management of these flies through increased knowledge of their biology, behavior, and genetics, and by using devices and techniques which minimize the use of pesticides.
