Blowflies & nicotine: an entomotoxicology study
Magni, P., Pazzi, M., Alladio, E., Vincenti, M., Brandimarte, M. and Dadour, I. (2016) Blowflies & nicotine: an entomotoxicology study. In: AAFS 68th Annual Scientific Meeting, 22 - 27 February, Las Vegas, Nev, USA.
This research describes the development and validation of a suitable analytical method, based on GC-MS, to detect nicotine in larvae, pupae, empty puparia and adults of blowfly Calliphora vomitoria L. (Diptera: Calliphoridae). Furthermore, the effects on the blowfly survival and growth rate were examined when reared on substrates spiked with three concentrations of nicotine, sufficient to cause death in humans.
