Abstract: Filth fly breeding sites in calf and dairy cow houses of a Hungarian cattle farm were monitored and mapped. Considerable fly emergence was detected on the floor where manure and/or manure-feed mixture was allowed to accumulate. It was found that (1) the majority of species in the manure-breeding fly communities are obligate coprophagous species without veterinary importance; (2) all species of veterinary importance develop in large numbers in both stable types studied. A reasonable application of any larvicide requires a preliminary survey of the potential breeding sites.
