Abstract

The objective of this work is to report the presence of dipteran parasitoids in poultry farms in Brazil. The experiment was carried out in two poultry farms in the Midwest Region in Brazilian territory. The pupae were removed and individualized in glass capsules for the emergence of adult dipterans or parasitoids. The specie Pachycrepoideus vindemmiae (Rondani) (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae) presented a frequency of 46.4% and showed parasitism of 93.9%. The species Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidae) presented a frequency of 93.3%. Of the dipterans collected, the most important species was M. domestica for causing public health problems, disturbing people and being a vector of disease-causing agents.
