FRAGA, Mariana Borges  e  D'ALMEIDA, José Mario. Preliminary remarks on attractiveness to different colours in Calliphoridae (Diptera), Niterói, RJ, Brazil. Entomol. vectores [online]. 2005, vol.12, n.1, pp. 141-147. ISSN 0328-0381.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0328-03812005000100015.

This research aimed to evaluate the influence of colours on the collecting of Calliphoridae flies. The methodology was based on colour traps (green, black, yellow, red, blue and white), baited with fish rotten (sardine). Green, black and red colours were the most attractive to the blowflies. It were collected 3549 flies, belonging to nine species. The most frequent were Chrysomya megacephala (Fabricius, 1794) (74,86%) and Lucilia eximia (Wiedemann, 1819) (14,06%).
