Two methods for rearing the African blood-feeding fly Haematobia thirouxi potans in the laboratory are described. The adult flies can be fed either on a bovine calf or in vitro, where they produced viable eggs only when provided with a 2% sodium/potassium chloride solution in addition to citrated bovine blood. The larvae were fed bovine dung.
