Abstract/Contents:Presents a study "to explore farther south in South America (colder climates) to obtain stocks of the fly Ormia depleta, a natural enemy of the mole cricket," and "to culture the captured South American flies in our laboratory and supply them to collaborators in other states for release." States that "about 10,000 of laboratory-reared progeny of this stock were released in 1988-1992...in all regions of Florida." Discusses the progress of the population stocking, noting that the fly may not be migrating north due to cold winters. A possible solution for this problem would be to encourage the flies "to spend winter months underground in diapause (hibernation) in the pupal stage." Discusses the progress concerning the determination of factors affecting diapause. This three-year study began in 1998.

USGA Summary Points:Collected, reared and released cold-tolerant Ormia depleta fly that kills mole crickets. Physiological and behavioral information on this natural biological control is being discovered. Need to understand factors influencing diapause in pupae.
