Hypoderma bovis: warble fly: bot, flies Hypoderma lineatum and H. bovis are large, heavy, and beelike. The females deposit their eggs on the legs of cattle. In the first study, cattle on six farms with a history of H. bovis infes- tations were Warble flies (Hypoderma boris and Hypoderma lineatum) are common and. The important species in cattle are Hypoderma bovis and Hypoderma lineatum whereas, Hypoderma diana, Hypoderma actaeon and.

Palearctic living in the northern part of the Old World. It is also found in Asia, Europe, and Africa. However, the sterile fly component was less successful because there was no efficient technique for large-scale in vitro rearing of Hypoderma spp.

A grassland with scattered trees or scattered clumps of trees, a type of community intermediate between grassland and forest. These are the common cattle grub, Hypoderma lineatum Villersand the northern cattle grub, Hypoderma bovis Linnaeus. Cattle grub larvae are true maggots, with retractable heads and no sclerotization or legs.

Human ophthalmomyiasis interna caused by Hypoderma tarandiNorthern Canada. From the s, the preventive treatment is easier, by subcutaneous use of ivermectinbut the warble fly remains present in North Africa. This product possesses unique characteristics not seen in organophosphorus systemics. The Hypoderma lineatum cycle tends shift one to two months earlier in southern climates.

In South America it includes the scrub ecotone between forest and paramo.

Rupture of the larvae during extraction bovvis lead to a localized inflammation and abscess formation. In North America, the common cattle grub ranges from northern Mexico to northern Canada, with the exception of south Texas and Alaska.


After hatching from the egg, it is white in color. Hosts Back to Top Although the typical hosts of common cattle grub are cattle and Old World deer, they have been known to parasitize horses and humans. It travels, from the initial site of penetration, through the connective tissue until it reaches the submucosa of the host’s esophagus where it will stay and develop hypodwrma the winter.

Management Back to Top Mechanical removal of larvae. It also feeds on dead cells, pus, and other secretions that result from the immune response. Biology and control of cattle grubs. These compounds should be avoided in January and February because severe reactions may occur due to the death of larvae in the wall of the esophagus or spinal canal. The value of the cattle carcass is severely depreciated.

Generally, fewer Hypoderma spp.

[Hypoderma bovis, cattle warble fly (morphology and biology)].

Drinking water treatments of insect growth regulators generally do not prevent cattle grub larvae from reaching backs of cattle, but may prevent adults from eclosing from pupae, thus preventing reproduction.

The first of these is an ability to kill migrating larvae, but unlike systemics, it is also highly efficacious at extremely low dosages against second- and third-instar larvae in warbles.

Fire and grazing are important in the long-term maintenance of grasslands. The insecticides are used during the autumn and early winter with the aim of killing the younger larval stages. For example, diseases caused by infection of filarial nematodes elephantiasis and river blindness.

Full-grown larvae are 25 mm long. Life cycle of a hypodegma grub. Help us improve the site by taking our survey.


Adults live three to five hypodetma. Eggs are laid in rows of 5 or more up to 16 on hairs, normally on the legs or lower abdomen of the host. After the adult emerges from the puparium, it only has days to reproduce and start the cycle all over again before dying. When the parasites arrive under the skin of the back, swellings begin to form, measuring about 3 cm in diameter. Warble fly is a name given to the genus Hypodermalarge flies which are parasitic on cattle and deer. Eggs are found on the host animal’s legs and sometimes on the body.

Hypoderma lineatum Villers Insecta: Females prefer hairs that have a larger diameter, even though hairs with a larger diameter are much more scarce in number than narrower hairs.

Warble fly

To cite this page: They remain under the skin, and when destroyed by pressure, the larvae can cause large purulent swellings, or anaphylaxis. The eggs hatch in four to seven days and the larvae crawl down the hair to the skin, which they then penetrate. Larvae of Hypoderma species also have been reported in horsessheepgoats and humans. Warble flies can damage large mammal populations.

Human cases of myiasis infections by fly larvae caused by H. At this point the swellings can be felt and seen. Klots and Klots, ; Leclercq, ; Pruett, ; Reina, et al. The larva lies in a cyst, which also contains a yellow purulent fluid.
