About 5 per cent. of turkeys reared each year in Jasper County (South Carolina) die as a result of infection with Leucocytozoon smithi, which is transmitted by Simuliids, the proved vectors in other parts of the United States being Simulium jenningsi Mall, and S. occidentale Tns.

The following is based partly on the author's summary. An account is given of a study of the biology of 15 species of Simuliids in northern Alberta in The climate, vegetation and waterways of the area are described; keys are included for separating the adults, pupae and larvae of the North American genera and the adults of both sexes and pupae of the 31 species recorded in Alberta, and Cited by: This book compiles the authors' previously unpublished research and nearly all of the published information on North American black flies.

and other organisms which feed either directly on the black flies or on their fecal pellets (Malmqvist, ). Despite the medical and ecological importance of black flies, progress on simuliid molecular biology has been slow. This is largely due to the tremendous difficulty in creating and maintaining laboratory colonies.

A recent () textbook by G. Mullen and L. Durden, Medical and Veterinary Entomology, has an excellent chapter devoted to black flies that covers biology, behavior, medical and veterinary risk, and information on personal protection and approaches to black fly control. The following Web sites contain detailed information on black flies.

True flies are insects of the order Diptera, the name being derived from the Greek δι- di-"two", and πτερόν pteron "wing". Insects of this order use only a single pair of wings to fly, the hindwings having evolved into advanced mechanosensory organs known as halteres, which act as high-speed sensors of rotational movement and allow dipterans to perform advanced aerobatics.

Black flies, also known as buffalo gnats and turkey gnats, are persistent and irritating pests that swarm around humans and other animals making control necessary in certain regions. Found in large parts of the United States, black flies can be a major public health hazard in some areas.

Adult black flies are most active during the summer months and bite mammals to feed on blood but can cause. The book provides a detailed conceptual framework for the study of disease emergence, arthropod physiology, genetics of vector competence, and the molecular biology of gene expression.

A remarkably useful section is also provided on methods for experimental manipulation of insects and ticks. Other flies that can cause ventral dermatitis (Table ) include black flies (Simulium spp), horse flies (tabanids such as Tabanus, Chrysops, and Haematopota spp), and stable flies (Stomoxys calcitrans).
