    Houseflies (Musca domestica L.) often make themselves a nuisance in human and livestock habitations. Moreover, these flies may transmit over a hundred different pathogens.

Organic materials and the relative high temperatures present in animal and human dwellings promote rapid development and allow the continuous presence of the flies. The main goal of the studies described in this thesis was to reveal the role that certain semiochemicals produced by M.domestica could play in environmentally friendly control of the flies...
