The screwworm was eradicated via the sterile insect release method in which flies sterilized by exposure to gamma radiation were liberated into the environment from aircraft. Prior to the 1950s and 60s, primary screwworms were a major economic burden to the production and treatment of livestock in the southwestern United States and Florida.

Other insects, birds, frogs, lizards and spiders feed on adult C. hominivorax.Welch (1993) describes the predation of ground-released sterile C. hominivorax flies by spiders. Cochliomyia hominivorax causes 80% of human myiasis in Argentina. In: Area-wide control of fruit flies and other insect pests. Wild and captive-raised deer also can be affected. Because females only mate once, any fly that mated with a sterile male will be unable to produce offspring which results in the eventual elimination of the fly.

Manual of Nearctic Diptera, Volume 2. Geographic Distribution Dermatobia hominis and C. hominovorax are Neotropical species, ranging from Mexico into South America. The fly only lays its eggs on living animals, differentiating it from all other blow flies in the Americas. Oct: 18-27. by Tan K -H]. Krafsur ES, Whitten CJ, Novy JE, 1987. Ants (especially Solenopsis sp.) 21:31-35. Taboada O. The screwworm was not eradicated from the rest of the United States until 1983 because of ongoing incursions of flies from Mexico (Novy 1991). M.S. Because pets can become infested, it is important that owners watch any wounds that do not heal properly. In newborn mammals, it often infects the site of the healing umbilical cord. Fuller G, 1962. > 0°C, dry summers, Cw - Warm temperate climate with dry winter, Warm temperate climate with dry winter (Warm average temp. Cochliomyia hominivorax occurs in relatively low numbers compared with other insect species. Larval primary screwworm, Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel). Cochliomyia hominivorax was first described from adult flies bred from a human infestation; the name hominivorax means "man-eater" (Coquerel, 1858). Wyss JH, 2000.

World Animal Health Publication and Handistatus II (dataset for 2002). 2. In the late 1950s, the USDA began implementing an eradication strategy based on releasing sterile male flies in the environment along with reducing infestations by continuous animal monitoring. 1332 pp. The primary screwworm is not capable of overwintering in areas that experience low temperatures or extended dry periods. Trop. In ideal environmental conditions, primary screwworms can complete their life cycle in 24 days (Laake et al. Cushing and Patton (1933) documented the difference between Cochliomyia americana C & P and Cochliomyia macellaria Fabricius, which served as a key basis in the eradication of Cochliomyia hominivorax from North America, Central America and parts of the Caribbean. Interestingly, most screwworm females only mate once, making them an ideal candidate for the sterile insect technique described below. OIE Handistatus, 2005. Larvae feeding on the skin and underlying tissues As of the publication of this document, the USDA is preparing to release sterilized male primary screwworms in the area of the current outbreak to eradicate the infestation. In addition, mucous membranes and antlers that are shedding velvet are potential sites of infection. The problem of screwworm, Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel, 1858), in Colombia. The current distribution of Cochliomyia hominivorax is primarily south of the Darién gap in southern Panama, including much of South America, and on a few Caribbean islands, notably Jamaica and Cuba (Welch 2016). Outside of the United States, introductions or re-introductions, followed by eradication, have occurred in … Adults:Laake (1936) reported that flies are generally deep metallic greenish-blue in colour. Expanding the analysis of the economic impact of eradicating C. hominivorax from Central America by adding linkages to the economy and consumer benefits resulted in an estimated total annual economic impact of $704.3 ($982.6) million to consumers (Wyss, 2000). Figure 5. CAB Abstracts Data Mining., CABI, Undated. Screw-worm Survey in western United States, 1949. This is a file from the Wikimedia Commons.

Additionally increase in the costs of inspection and handling of animals, and the increase in costs of insecticides, and veterinary services and medicines results in a negative economic impact (Wyss, 2000). Samantha Gibbs, U.S. Wounds that are not properly healing or that are draining excessively should be inspected for larvae. Nowadays, its geographic distribution covers tropical South America and an important region of Argentina. The spiracles with three slit-like openings are almost completely surrounded by heavily sclerotized peritremes, but which appear incomplete ventrally. Cochliomyia hominivorax is endemic to the Western Hemisphere and occurs in tropical, subtropical, and temperate zones. Screwworms can infest all types of mammals and other warm-blooded animals, including livestock, wildlife, pets and even humans, although they are rarely found in birds. A wind oriented trap for screwworm flies. Their larvae infest warm-blooded vertebrates and feed on host’s tissues, resulting in severe industry losses.

Infestation of humans is under-reported due to the negative social implications. The most mature larvae develop spines that protrude from the body and wrap around in a spiral, hence the name screwworm (Hall 1991). by Tan K -H]. All larval instars have characteristic bands of spines on most segments and a pair of heavily sclerotized mouth hooks, main tracheal trunks and spiracles. Website of the World Organisation for Animal Health (formerly Office International des Epizooties).
