dc.description.abstractRestaurant sites in Athens Georgia were surveyed for filth fly populations at dumpsters and inside kitchens. Flies from the family Calliphoridae (Lucilia, Cochliomyia and Chrysomya) comprised the majority of filth flies found at dumpsters (>95%). Results from dumpsters show significant differences in mean numbers of flies caught between the nine sampling sites. Flies populations inside restaurant kitchens had differed from dumpster sites in that they had a significantly higher percent of M. domestica (29.9%). All filth flies showed an affinity to glue boards located below the light source on light traps with the exception of Sarcophagidae, which preferred glue boards above the light source. A survey of food service workers and pest control operators agreed that flies were not perceived as a problematic pest in food service establishments, however differed on how fly treatments were conducted.
