Abstract

The effect of electrochemical treatment of liquid manure (oligolysis) on the development of Musca domestica was studied under laboratory conditions. In electrochemical treated manure clearly fewer flies, pupae and larvae were found compared to untreated manure which was primarily the result of destruction of the surface layer on the treated manure. Furthermore our results suggest that the development of larvae and pupae is inhibited during the electrochemical treatment of manure.
