Abstract

With the recent resurgence in the interest and use of maggot therapy, blow fly rearing can be expected to increase. The rearing of these necrophagous flies is technically simple, but can be expensive, malodorous, and wasteful of space. Although there are numerous references to maggot rearing in the older literature, they do not adequately address these specific problems. Therefore, we describe several of the simple, low-cost, and unobtrusive strategies for rearing blow flies that have proven useful in our hospital-based insectary.
