This study was carried out in Şanlıurfa and its surrounding districts (Hilvan, Viransehir, Suruc and Harran) in 2003. Azametifos (Snip) was sprinkled on pieces of putrefied meat, liver and spleen to accumulate and kill myiasis flies. Thus, a total of 1775 myiasis flies were collected from the specimens. Flies identified according to their morphological characteristics included 830 (46.8%) Lucilia sericata, 824 (46.4%) Chrysomya albiceps, 85 (4.8%) Calliphora vicina, 34 (1.9%) Sarcophaga haemorrhoidalis, 1 (0.05 %) S. carnaria and, 1 (0.05 %) C. vomitoria. The examination of flies showed that 1639 (92.3%) of them were females and 136 (7.7 %), males. Both females and males were encountered in other species except for S. carnaria and C. vomitoria. The highest rates of flies were found during May and the lowest during October.
